    The state police, the Grand Isle Sheriffs Department and the Colchester Police Marine Unit will be participating in Operation Dry Water as part of a nationally coordinated effort to reduce the number of accidents caused by operators who are under the influence of alcohol.

    This weekends operation will focus on Lake Champlain, but state police officers will be working on other bodies of water as well.

    It will include increased patrols, breathalyzer tests, and checkpoints as well as boater education.
