Meeting on South Patrick Shores Contaminated Land Investigation to be Held on November 9, 2022

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers representatives will be available to discuss the Naval Air Station Banana River Off-Base Disposal Area and the environmental investigation and proposed fieldwork approach between 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2022, at the Pelican Beach Club House, 1525 Florida A1A, Satellite Beach. For more information, email or call (800) 710-5184.

In 2018, Fight for Zero's team did comprehensive work in bringing attention to homes built on top of a military landfill in the South Patrick Shores community next to Patrick Air Force Base in addition to our work with cancer cluster crowdsourcing, PFAS contamination, national collaborations, and hosting a community meeting for Erin Brockovich in Satellite Beach, Florida. 

Our team spent weeks knocking on doors, gathering documents, photographing waste, recording videos, reaching out to Brockovich's team, organizing neighborhood meetings, consistently attending local Restoration Advisory Board meetings, educating representatives, sorting through archived newspapers, and unburying military debris. In recent years we have sent newsletters, knocked on doors, met with families, and communicated with the school board and city officials to encourage participation in the environmental investigation.
