Generations of Health Problems Related to Water Contamination
Since the '50s, water wells at Camp Lejeune have been poisoned by a cocktail of dangerous chemicals including trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, benzene and vinyl chloride. The contamination continued until the wells were closed in the mid-80s.
For years, Marine Corps officials denied and covered up the problem. Most Marine veterans and their families had no idea that they were drinking contaminated water until Congress required the military to notify affected service members beginning in 2008. Since then, the Department of Defense has released thousands of documents about water contamination at Camp Lejeune.
