Background on Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
In 1982, a group of chemicals known as “volatile organic compounds” (VOCs) were discovered in the water of two base treatment plants. These chemicals included:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE), a cleaning agent, used in most dry cleaners through at least the 1950s
- Perchloroethylene (PCE), used for industrial cleaning, dry-cleaning and degreasing
- Benzene, a chemical found in gasoline and used to make plastics
- Vinyl chloride, a component of polyvinyl chloride, which is used to make plastic products
According to the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR), anyone who resided at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 may have been exposed to these chemicals.
