Updated: Friday, June 27 2014, 07:55 AM CDT

The Austin Police Department will take steps to reduce the number of accidents and fatalities on the water.

Austin Police and other law enforcement agencies will conduct Operation Dry Water, a national weekend of Boating While Intoxicated detection and enforcement, starting Friday morning at 9 a.m. at area lakes.

Since the initiative began in 2009, boating fatalities with alcohol as a factor decreased from 19% to 17%.

A BWI charge carries the same punishment as a DWI: Class B misdemeanor with a minimum confinement of 72 hours.

The initiative runs until 12 a.m. Monday morning.
