Attention DoD Personnel and Civilians Who Worked or Lived at Camp Lejeune

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs:

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

Routine water testing in 1982 found that drinking water sources at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene, or perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), all of which are known to be carcinogenic or harmful to humans. Contamination of water was documented at up to 300 times acceptable levels in some cases.

In 1985, the United States military shut down the water sources that were contaminated. The move came after heavy legal and legislative pressure from veterans, families, and veterans advocacy groups. Unfortunately, many of those who had been exposed to the chemicals had developed cancer and other major health problems.
