What Caused the Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune?
Studies show that water from two of the eight water treatment plants located on Camp Lejeune contained specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The most concerning volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found at Camp Lejeune include but are not limited to:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)
- Vinyl chloride
- Methylene chloride
Drinking water contaminated with these compounds is believed to increase a person’s risk of significant health problems, including cancer and Parkinson’s disease. While it is unknown how these compounds entered the water treatment plants, it is believed that the supply was tainted from at least 1953 until 1987.
What Kind of Health Problems Are Caused by the Toxins?
Military service men and women living at the base between 1953 and 1987, have reported serious health problems. Researchers now believe that the toxic water may be to blame.
