Camp Lejeune Toxic Water
Did you or a loved one visit, work, or live at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987? If you battled sickness, injuries, birth defects, or cancers after exposure to Camp Lejeune contaminated water, contact us today. You may be entitled to compensation.
What is Camp Lejeune and what happened? U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina was established in 1942. In 1982, the Marine Corps discovered specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water provided by two of the eight water treatment plants on base (cdc.gov). Supply wells were contaminated by multiple sources: leaking underground storage tanks, industrial area spills, and waste disposal sites.
What is The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) Position on the Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune? It is ATSDR’s position that past exposures from the 1950s through February 1985 to trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, and other contaminants in the drinking water at the Camp Lejeune likely increased the risk of cancers (kidney, multiple myeloma, leukemias, and others), adverse birth outcomes, and other adverse health effects of residents (including infants and children), civilian workers, Marines and Naval personnel at Camp Lejeune.
