Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Information

Water systems at the Marine Corps Base in Lejeune, NC were contaminated with chemical compounds from at least 1957 to February 1985 when the wells supplying the water systems were shut down. These water systems served housing, administrative, and recreational facilities, as well as the base hospital. There is limited and suggestive evidence of an association between certain diseases and the chemical compounds found at Camp Lejeune during the period of contamination.
