Burton “Burt” Moore, Chief of the Dredging Section of the Savannah District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, surveys the beach renourishment at Tybee Island, Georgia. Moore oversees the work to repair beach erosion caused by Hurricanes Matthew and Irma in 2016 and 2017. Renourishing the beach will help mitigate damage from future storms striking the small Georgia resort town. The Corps of Engineers awarded the work contract to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company. Tybee Island sits adjacent to the Savannah harbor shipping channel, a federal navigation project. The Corps of Engineers continues its Savannah Harbor Expansion Project to deepen the entire harbor from its current 42-foot depth to 47 feet. Dredging crews completed the outer harbor, also known as the outer channel, deepening in the spring of 2018. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo by Billy Birdwell.) (Photos taken on April 11, 2018.)

Burton “Burt” Moore, right, with the Savannah District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, discusses beach renourishment on Tybee Island, Georgia, with Joe Wilson, that town’s director of public works. 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.)
