FPL’s multi-faceted, long-term solution to address salinity issues related to the Turkey Point cooling canals is seeing success, and the company has invested millions of dollars in numerous other environmental improvements to restore critical habitat and protect endangered species. Also, directly adjacent to Turkey Point, FPL manages the single-largest privately funded Everglades restoration project, permanently protecting approximately 13,000 acres of historical Eastern Everglades wetlands. Drainage and flood control projects undertaken in the early 1900s dramatically altered the wetlands’ physical and biological characteristics. FPL purchased the area in the 1970s and has been working for many years to restore them to their natural state.
