What Happened to the Water at Camp Lejeune?
For decades, runoff from storage tanks, plants, and a nearby dry-cleaning facility entered the water supply at Camp Lejeune. Although officials were aware of this contamination, they failed to address or remedy the situation. The government did not close the affected water supply wells until 1985.
Several chemicals entered the water supply, including trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride. These substances are carcinogenic and may be deadly when consumed. Despite this, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has denied many disability claims related to Camp Lejeune, leaving many victims without the care that they deserve.
