What Happened at Camp Lejeune?

Camp Lejeune is an active Marine Corps base that was opened in 1942. Recently, however, scientific and medical evidence revealed that individuals present at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 were exposed to contaminated drinking water.

Volatile organic compounds such as tetrachloroethylene (PCE or PERC), trichloroethylene (TCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride are believed to have contaminated the base’s drinking water as the result of base operations and nearby business activities. Serious health conditions have since been connected to exposure to these substances through the base’s drinking water supply.
