How Did Camp Lejeune Water Get Contaminated?

For more than 30 years, service members and their families stationed at a military base in North Carolina unknowingly drank and bathed in water contaminated with hazardous chemicals. In the 1980s, Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, NC, tested its water supply for environmental toxins. The base found chemicals like trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, benzene, and vinyl chloride. Researchers say these toxins increase the risk of various cancers, congenital disabilities, and Parkinson’s disease. More than a million people lived at Camp Lejeune during the contamination period.

Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022

Jan 25th, 2022

The Camp Lejeune Justice 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.
