Hundreds Of Thousands Of Veterans And Civilians Were Exposed To Toxic Chemicals

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act has now been signed into law, allowing veterans, military families, and staff who were exposed to toxic water at Camp Lejeune between 1953-1987 the ability to recover millions of dollars in compensation

VOCs Discovered In Drinking Water At Camp Lejeune

In 1982, the Marine Corps discovered the presence of volatile organic compounds in the drinking water in two of the eight water treatment plants on the base due to leaking underground water storage tanks and water disposal tanks.

During routine testing of the water sources, they found contamination with benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE) or perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), all known to be cancer-causing or harmful to humans. In some cases, contaminants were found up to 300 times the acceptable levels.

This contamination began in the early 1950s. In 1985, most of these wells had been shut down. However, many veterans, family members, and civilians have developed serious medical conditions after prior exposure to these dangerous contaminants.

VA: Evidence Shows Association Between Contamination And Later Health Risks

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, scientific research and medical studies show an association between the exposure to contaminants in the drinking water during military service at both Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River, North Carolina to the development of later diseases.
