In 2006, Lake audiences were asked what they felt the most important issue at the Lake was – Lake Safety came in first.

So, one of LOWA’s first tasks was to develop the Designate a Captain Program to encourage the boat captains to stay sober while piloting their vessels. Lake area restaurants and bars willingly signed up to offer participating captains a free non-alcoholic beverage. After the formation of the Lake’s Water Safety Council, LOWA turned the Designate a Captain program over to them.
