There's a safety reminder to consider while making plans for July Fourth celebrations.

State law enforcement is pushing Kentuckians to stay sober and safe out on the water.

Law enforcement agencies and Fish and Wildlife Department Officers in Kentucky are taking part Friday in a nationwide program called "Operation Dry Water."

They plan to put out safety messages at boat ramps and will answer questions about boating laws and required safety equipment.

Organizers say the goal isn't to surprise people and make arrests.

Instead, they're working in hopes that there will be no cases of boating under the influence.
