Boaters should think twice before having a cocktail on the water, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said.

The DNR and other agencies around the state are stepping up patrols for impaired boaters this weekend — June 28-30. The enforcement is part of Operation Dry Water, a national weekend of boating while intoxicated (BWI) education and enforcement directed toward reducing alcohol and drug-related accidents and fatalities.
