TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. -- A federal study beginning this month will examine how much the Savannah River's bustling shipping channel contributes to beach erosion on Tybee Island.
The $411,700 study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will also look at how much the federal government will need to pay to renourish Georgia's most popular public beach with sand.
