Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claims

Any individual – including U.S. Military Veterans and their families – who served, worked, or resided at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C., between 1953 and 1987 may have come into contact with contaminated drinking water linked to severe medical conditions and may be eligible for health benefits and disability compensation.

In the early 1980s, two water-supply systems at Camp Lejeune were found to be contaminated with a group of chemicals known as “volatile organic compounds.” These chemicals – such as Trichloroethylene (a metal cleaner), Tetrachloroethylene (a dry cleaning agent), Benzene (a chemical often used in gasoline), Methylene chloride (a chemical solvent used in labs and to remove paint), and Vinyl chloride (a colorless gas used to make polyvinyl chloride and plastic products) – were found to have infiltrated the drinking water.

It is estimated that up to one million people, including; military members, military staff, military family members, and other individuals at Camp Lejeune, were exposed to the chemicals in this contaminated water (CDC).
