KENOSHA - The US Coast Guard is collaborating with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department to patrol the waterways of southeastern Wisconsin through this weekend.

In a news release, the Coast Guard says it aims to improve safety on the water when boating activity is at its highest.

The Coast Guard is also supplying some resources to make sure all boats are up to date on federal boating safety requirements. A virtual safety check is available on its website.
