2020 - 2023 Study in Brevard County
Are you ready to help make a difference for future generations by collecting scientific data through water, soil, and air sampling? We are building teams of citizen scientists in each city of Brevard County to collect samples and share those results with your communities.
This study will help us better understand PFAS contamination health risks and prevent exposures. PFAS compounds were detected in groundwater and drinking water throughout the county in 2018 after the Department of Defense released their sampling report. Fight For Zero has partnered with the University of Florida (UF), a team that will consist of environmental health and engineering experts to lead the project's community engagement.
Brevard County residents can become a part of this project and put on an exclusive email by signing up as a citizen scientist. You will gain access to our grassroots virtual meetings and training videos to learn how to take the samples. The testing kits and materials are provided along with an online workshop to discuss details and teach communities how to take samples. If you would like to help us collect water around your community submit your name, city, phone, and email.
