Many people will enjoy some alcohol over the Fourth of July holiday, but local law enforcement want to make sure you are safe on the streets and while boating on the water.

That's why Houston police and members of the parks department will be patrolling area lakes, looking for boaters who are piloting boats while drinking.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office will also have stations set up to take mandatory blood draws of boaters who appear to be intoxicated.
