The Iowa DNR is reminding boaters that alcohol and water don’t mix. Marion County Conservation Officer Ken Kenyon says boaters on Lake Red Rock will notice an increase in enforcement efforts this weekend as part of Operation Dry Water – a program designed to curb the number of alcohol related boating accidents. According to the DNR, 25 percent of boating accidents in 2008 involved alcohol.
