New Commander Takes Over the Savannah District

Col. Daniel H. Hibner will take command of the Savannah District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, from Col. Marvin L. Griffin, in a formal ceremony at 10 a.m., June 8, reports USACE.

Brig. Gen. Diana M. Holland, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ South Atlantic Division, will officiate at the formal change-of-command ceremony in the Oglethorpe Auditorium of the International Trade and Convention Center on Hutchinson Island.

The Savannah District, among others, maintains the deep water harbors in Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia, and it leads the effort to deepen the Savannah harbor.

Hibner comes to the Savannah District from U.S. Central Command Headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida.

Griffin took command of the Savannah District in June 2015. During his tenure in command of the Savannah District, he oversaw the deepening of the outer half of the Savannah Harbor and the removal of the Back River tide gate, both part of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project.

Also during this period the District removed the Civil War ironclad CSS Georgia from the shipping channel. Other aspects of the harbor deepening took significant strides toward completion.
