HOLLISTER, Mo - Hundreds of boaters are gearing up for some time on the lake. And the Missouri Highway Patrol is joining a national effort called Operation Dry Water, that's aimed at keeping people safer on the water. The goal of these special patrols is for officers to be more visible on the lake so they can find and remove people who are drunk and operating a boat. "This is the busiest time of year for this area so you see the increase in boater traffic and you also see the increase in crashes and BWI arrests," said Sargent Mike Watson with the Missouri Highway Patrol.
