## What happened at Camp Lejeune? For decades, hundreds of thousands of military personnel and their families stationed at the Camp Lejeune military base in North Carolina were exposed to contaminated water between 1953 and 1987. During that time, residents, locals, servicemen and their families drank, cooked with, and bathed in water containing dangerous chemicals. The chemicals found in the water at Camp Lejeune have been linked to various injuries, cancers, and diseases.

## Unsafe Levels of Toxic Chemicals Found at Camp Lejeune Testing performed on the water supply at Camp Lejeune revealed that the base’s water sources were highly contaminated from at least 1953 through 1987 with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other carcinogenic chemicals. Specifically, Perchloroethylene (PCE) was found in the water at levels more than 43 times the safe legal limit for human exposure. Trichloroethylene (TCE) was found at levels nearly 700 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s maximum safety limit. In addition, Camp Lejeune’s water supply was found to be contaminated with benzene and vinyl chloride, both of which are toxic and capable of causing diseases and cancers.

## Potential Water Contamination Injuries for Individuals That Were Exposed at Camp Lejeune The toxic chemicals found in Camp Lejeune’s water have been linked to a variety of cancers, diseases and health problems, many of which are eligible for compensation through the Camp Lejeune Compensation Fund: - Infertility - Bladder cancer - Breast cancer - Esophageal cancer - Hepatic steatosis - Kidney cancer - Leukemia - Liver cancer - Lung cancer - Miscarriage - Multiple myeloma - Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) - Neurobehavioral effects - Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) - Parkinson’s disease - Renal toxicity - Scleroderma

## Can I get Compensated if I was Exposed to the Water at Camp Lejeune? On January 25, 2022, “The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022” was introduced in Congress, and it allows military service members, their families, and other local civilians to seek compensation for their injuries from exposures to the contaminants at Camp Lejeune.
