Restoration Updates

Foley Cellulose is involved in one of the most ambitious environmental restoration projects in Florida conservation history. When completed, the Fenholloway Water Quality Project will restore a stream formerly designated by the state as “industrial” to fishable-swimmable standards, create conditions for seagrasses to return to their natural range in near-shore Gulf waters near the Fenholloway River, and restore a significant freshwater wetland. The Taylor County Board of County Commissioners supports our efforts.

We are working with regulatory agencies and private scientists to address color, salinity, nutrient and dissolved oxygen concerns. Our goal for the river and near-shore Gulf waters to meet all water quality standards.
