Jeff Williams, a wildlife biologist at Savannah-based Sligh Environmental Consultants, has implemented a technology at Belfair in Bluffton - rice trunks - that's more than 200 years old. Once used to flood rice fields, Williams told us on Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016, that the rice trunk he installed over a bridge on Belfair's West Course has improved water quality, and been a boon to wildlife and the natural habitat as a whole.
