In April 2013, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia voted to accept a gift of 15.45 acres of Wormsloe Plantation property to the University of Georgia. The trustees of the Wormsloe Foundation donated the property to the state of Georgia for environmental history research and education. The intention is for the property to be used for interdisciplinary research by faculty and graduate students working in archaeology, ecology, environmental planning and design, historic preservation, landscape architecture, geography, history and engineering. 

Part of the research includes investigation of historical rice cultivation using advanced geospatial techniques and archaeological methods. So who do you call when you need to irrigate a rice field on Isle of Hope? McClain’s Shallow Wells of course! Our team was able to provide environmentally balanced solutions for rice propagation quickly and efficiently, without sapping our precious Floridan Aquifer.
