Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
An incident which has been described as one of the worst public drinking-water contaminations in our country’s history impacted one of the biggest camps in the Marine Corps, Base Camp Lejeune of Jacksonville, North Carolina. Estimated to have begun as early as the 1950s, nearly a million Marines and their families, as well as some civilian workers, were exposed to what was described by federal scientists as some of the highest toxic chemical levels ever seen in a public drinking water system. These toxic chemicals, which were not discovered until the 1980s, have been known to cause cancer and other serious health issues.
