How toxic materials in the water at Camp Lejeune affected soldiers and their families
From August 1953 through December 1987, soldiers and families stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina Marine Corps Base may have been exposed to highly-toxic groundwater due to oil, industrial wastewater, and radioactive chemicals being dumped into storm drains.
The drinking and bathing water of the Tarawa Terrace family housing units may have been contaminated with one or more of the following toxins:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE), a degreaser;
- Perchloroethylene (PCE), a dry-cleaning solvent;
- Benzene, an industrial solvent; and,
- Vinyl chloride is a colorless, flammable gas used in plastics.
The levels of PCE in the water during this period grossly exceeded the amount allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Act.
Exposure to toxin-contaminated drinking water occurred because these chemicals leaked into groundwater that supplied the Tarawa Terrace drinking water system from several local businesses adjacent to the Camp Lejeune military base.
