CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The engineer for the Charleston District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers leaves this week for a new post at the Pentagon.

Lt. Col. Ed Chamberlayne tells The Associated Press that his time in Charleston involved the type of job he always wanted.

Much of Chamberlayne's attention has focused on studies for the proposed $350 million deepening of Charleston Harbor. But during the past two years the corps has also finished 1 of the world's largest Army dining halls at Fort Jackson in Columbia. An environmental impact statement is also under way for a much-debated gold mine in Lancaster County.

Chamberlayne says one of his proudest moments was cutting the ribbon for a water tank that brought pure water to Orangeburg County residents.
