Moore oversees beach renourishments as part of his duties as the dredging manager for the Savannah District. In the spring of 2018, the Savannah District undertook the task of renourishing parts of Tybee’s beach eroded by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. The $4.3 million contract took approximately 250,000 cubic yards of pristine beach sand from a “borrow site” about a mile offshore and placed in onto specified areas of the beach. Beach renourishment helps protect the city from future storms. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo by Billy Birdwell.)
