Marine Patrol, Warden Service and Coast Guard Join Forces to Highlight Boating Safety

The Maine Marine Patrol, the Maine Warden Service, and the U.S. Coast Guard held a joint press conference today to raise awareness of the dangers of boating under the influence on Maine's coastal and inland waters. Against the backdrop of the Kennebec River, Sergeant Daniel White of the Maine Marine Patrol, Lieutenant Adam Gormely of the Maine Warden Service, and Lieutenant Nick Barrows of the U.S. Coast Guard each discussed the importance of boating safety and the shared commitment each agency brings to education and enforcement of Maine's boating under the influence laws. The press conference, attended by reporters from WCSH 6, WGME 13 and the Kennebec Journal was part of a national boating under the influence awareness campaign known as Operation Drywater, held each year at the start of the summer boating season. Information about the awareness campaign can be found here.
