Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

Recently there have been many lawsuits filed regarding Camp Lejeune Water Contamination. The United States Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, located in North Carolina, is home to an active duty, dependent, retiree, and civilian employee population of nearly 150,000 people. The base generates almost $3 billion in commerce each year.

Were You at Camp Lejeune Between 1953 – 1987

However, the base has been linked to toxic water exposure for military personnel and their families stationed there between 1953 and 1987. It is estimated that at least 900,000 people were exposed to the contaminated water during this time period.

Since the discovery of the contamination, the United States government has acknowledged the link between the toxic water and a number of health problems, including cancer, kidney disease, and reproductive issues.

What Are PFAS?

Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals,” are toxic, man-made chemicals that are being discovered in drinking water across the county.

Exposure to PFAS chemicals can cause adverse health outcomes, including:

  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Abnormal thyroid hormone levels
  • Liver inflammation
  • Cancer
