Wetland rehab part of cost for I-16 park
Authority to focus on finding tenants in 2016

Two years ago, Bulloch County paid almost $210,000 for credits representing wetlands to be restored and protected elsewhere in order to fill 8.98 acres of wetland in the Interstate 16 industrial park being created adjacent to the U.S. Highway 301 interchange. So far, only a fraction of the credits have been used, but more work is ahead. The wetland mitigation is a relatively small part of a Tax Allocation District plan with a $13.25 million predicted “short-term” price tag in public funds.
