MOHAVE COUNTY – During the Weekend of July 5th through 7th, The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety will again be participating in Operation Dry Water.

Operation Dry Water is a national campaign with the focus of reducing the number of alcohol and drug related crashes and fatalities, while fostering a stronger, more visible deterrent to alcohol and drug use on the water.

In 2018, 494 arrests were made for boating under the influence, during this same campaign across the country. Law Enforcement Agencies from all 50 U.S. States will be participating in this year’s targeted enforcement. Since its inception in 2009, Operation Dry Water has made a positive difference on our nations waterways.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety reminds everyone to Boat Safe, Boat Smart, Boat Sober, and to Wear a Life Jacket.
