Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

Routine water testing in 1982 found that drinking water sources at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene, or perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), all of which are known to be carcinogenic or harmful to humans. Contamination of water was documented at up to 300 times acceptable levels in some cases. Camp Lejeune water contamination sources included leaking underground water storage tanks and waste disposal sites. The contaminated wells were mostly closed by February of 1985; however, those who had been exposed have faced cancer and other serious health problems related to the chemicals.
Health conditions may include :

  • > Bladder cancer

Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022

The Camp LejeuneJustice Act of 2022 is a bipartisan bill intended to ensure that individuals – veterans, their family members or other individuals living or working at the base between 1953 and 1987 – who were harmed by water contamination at Camp Lejeune receive fair compensation. Many of these individuals have had their claims inappropriately denied or delayed, resulting in additional harm.

The Bill is making its way through Congress as part of the Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives on March 4, 2022. The Act will permit people who worked, lived, or were exposed in-utero, to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, to file a claim in U.S. federal court.

People or loved ones of those who lived, worked, or were stationed at Camp Lejeune who experienced a water toxicity-related illness may be eligible for compensation.
