Camp Lejeune Water Contamination-Decades of Water Contamination

Posted by : Ed Lott, Ph.D., M.B.A.

Camp Lejeune represents the worst contamination of a public water system in American history. From 1953 to 1987 the water supply at the Marine Corps base at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina was contaminated with dangerously high levels of carcinogenic chemicals. Marines, their families, and people who worked at Camp Lejeune drank and bathed in water contaminated with more than 70 chemicals and toxins at levels 240 to 3400 times permitted by safety standards.

This toxic water did not create just a theoretical risk of harm. Scientific and medical evidence has shown undeniably that exposure to this contaminated water while living or working at Camp Lejeune caused thousands to develop cancer, birth defects, and other conditions.

Sadly, the law in North Carolina had blocked these Camp Lejeune victims from bringing cancer lawsuits and other claims against the government. Now, however, a new federal law was passed that will enable victims of water contamination at Camp Lejeune to file claims and get financial compensation.

President Biden will sign the PACT Act on Monday.  Why the wait?  The Camp Lejeune class action lawsuit start date can wait – our lawyers have long been moving forward assuming this bill will pass.  But veterans need health care yesterday.
