How Did Men, Women, and Children get poisoned by the water at Camp Lejeune?

Servicemembers, their families, and those who worked at Camp Lejeune before 1987 may have been exposed to toxic drinking water.

Two water supply systems at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with chemicals known as ‘volatile organic compounds.’ These compounds are known carcinogens and are dangerous for humans, including: BenzeneTrichloroethylene (TCE), TetrachloroethylenePerchloroethylene (PCE), Vinyl chloride (VC)

Camp LeJeune Justice Act of 2022

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act ensures that those who lived and worked at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 only to be diagnosed with cancer or other serious illness receive fair compensation for their injury. Unfortunately, many veterans exposed to toxic drinking water and who developed serious conditions have their claims unfairly denied, causing additional harm.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 is part of the Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022, which aims to allow veterans and individuals to file a claim in U.S. federal court for financial damages if they were stationed at, lived, worked at, or were exposed in-utero to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987.
