Participate in a PFAS Health Research Study

Communities in Fountain Valley were exposed to per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in their drinking water as a result of firefighting foam used at a nearby air force base.

The CO SCOPE team hopes to determine how exposure to these chemicals may be impacting the health of residents who drank contaminated water.

This study is part of a nationwide study funded by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.


This study completed data collection as of September 30, 2023.


PFAS results were mailed out in February 2024. 

To discuss results and next steps, community members are invited to attend a public meeting: 

Tuesday, April 23, 2024 


Mesa Ridge High School cafeteria 

6070 Mesa Ridge Pkwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80911

Alternatively, please attend one of the online meeting sessions:

Meeting 1
