Captain Powell stated, “Missouri’s lakes, rivers and streams provide numerous recreational opportunities for families to spend quality time together. It is the goal of the Missouri State Highway Patrol to do all we can to insure that families can spend time on, and around the water in a safe environment. Operating a vessel while intoxicated will not be tolerated.”
