Video: New Commander discusses basin priorities

Last month we welcomed a new commander to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District, Col. Thomas J. Tickner. In his first few weeks as commander, he’s been getting to know the district inside out—including our management of the Savannah River Basin.

In the following video message, Tickner explains his priorities for the basin and his emphasis on working with stakeholders like you. We welcome your feedback, comments and questions. Thanks for following Balancing the Basin!
