Camp LeJeune Water Issue
The Marine Corps encourages all those who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune
before 1987 to register to receive notifications regarding
Camp Lejeune Historic
Drinking Water. Please encourage family or friends who were at Camp
Lejeune during this period to also join the Notification Registry.

Substance and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is conducting a health study to determine
if there is an association between in-utero exposure to the water and certain
adverse health effects. The National Academy of Sciences National Research
Council (NRC) has reviewed scientific evidence on associations between adverse
health effects and historical data.
Individuals registered with the official Camp Lejeune Historic Drinking Water

United States Postal Service.
