U.S. Veterans, their family members and employees of Camp LeJeune, North Carolina, may have been exposed to contaminated water between August 1953 and December 1987. Water at Camp LeJeune was contaminated with several hazardous chemicals linked to serious health conditions including cancer, birth defects and other potentially life-threatening injuries. The water contained volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including dry cleaning solvents, degreasers, chemicals used on heavy machinery and almost 70 other toxic substances. The (VOCs) were generated by treatment plants that supplied water to the base and many family housing units.
Pending passage of the Camp LeJeune Justice Act of 2022, individuals (including in utero) exposed to and harmed by the contaminated water will have a path to file a claim against the U.S. Government and potentially secure monetary compensation.
