It was determined by the Marine Corps that the water supply to Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 from two water treatment facilities was heavily contaminated with chemical compounds including:
This compound caused the greatest harm. It is a clear liquid that is commonly used in dry cleaning. It is responsible for many injuries and deaths of victims exposed to contaminated water. It has been shown to cause a wide variety of medical conditions including kidney cancer, multiple myeloma, bladder cancer, non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and other liver and kidney damage.
This industrial chemical is used in the manufacture of refrigerants. It is also used as a fumigant to kill insects and as a solvent. The chemical has been linked to the occurrence of congenital heart defects in newborn children due to exposure of expectant mothers during pregnancy.
Camp Lejeune water contamination health issues include adult leukemia, aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and parkinson’s disease. You may be eligible to file a lawsuit if you spent at least 30 days at Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River between August 1953 and December 1987, and you were diagnosed with any of these health complications.
