CAMP LEJUNE

WATER CONTAMINATION

HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A SERIOUS ILLNESS OR CONDITION AFTER LIVING OR WORKING AT CAMP LEJUNE?

If you or a loved one lived or worked at the Camp Lejune Marine Corps base between 1953 and 1987, and have been diagnosed with a serious illness or medical condition, you may be entitled to compensation.

In 1982, the Marine Corps discovered certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water at Camp Lejune. The VOCs included trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCS), vinyl chloride, and other contaminants. These VOCs have been known to increase the risk of certain cancers (kidney, multiple myeloma, and leukemia), adverse birth outcomes, and other serious illnesses or medical conditions.

Veterans, their families, and workers at Camp Lejune have long known that the water was contaminated and caused severe illness. Strict laws, however, made any legal recovery impossible. In recent months, the U.S. Congress has advanced legislation called the Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022, that will allow affected individuals to pursue legal claims.
