GREEN BAY, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  With the Fourth-of-July just a week away, authorities are stepping up enforcement efforts to nab drunk boaters. Starting today "Operation Dry Water" begins on waters in the Green Bay area. It's the sixth year in a row that the U-S Coast Guard, the state D-N-R, and local sheriff's and police agencies are teaming up to stop drunks on the water.

Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Austin Olmstead of Green Bay says 17-percent of all boating deaths last year were caused by alcohol.

In Wisconsin the legal limit for boaters' intoxication is the same as that on the highways -- 0.08.
