The Water Supply at Camp Lejeune Was Contaminated
Two of eight water supply systems serving the Camp Lejeune base in North Carolina were found to be contaminated with industrial solvents, benzene, and other chemicals between 1957 and 1987. Although the water treatment plant was shut down when it was evident there were toxins present, the damage to the health of those affected had already been done. The Marine Corps continued to cover up the hazards by not informing involved personnel.
As many as one million people may be affected with exposure related serious illnesses.
Camp Lejeune was home for many U.S. Marines, U.S Navy Sailors, their families and civilian workers as they served their country. Yet they were exposed to hazardous chemicals in their drinking water and not warned when the risks became known.
There is Scientific and Medical Evidence That Contaminated Water at Camp Lejeune Caused Serious Health Conditions
If you or a family member served at either Marine Corps Base Camp LeJeune or Marine Corps Air Station New River in North Carolina between 1953 and 1987, you may have been exposed to toxins in the drinking water.
