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.

The Department of the Navy is funding two independent research initiatives. The CDC Agency for Toxic 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 Registry will receive the public summary of the NRC committee report through the United States Postal Service.  Please allow time for delivery of the public summary. In the interim, you may access documents at the NRC website.


The NRC committee’s report and findings, “Contaminated Drinking Water at Camp Lejeune ,” was released Saturday, June 13, 2009.

The purpose of this site is to help provide information about the toxic water contamination aboard U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

CNN Airs News Story on Male Breast Cancer at Camp Lejeune http://breastcancer.about.com/b/2009/09/21/cnn-camp-lejeune-mbc.htm
Tune in to CNN on Thursday and Friday night (September 24th and 25th) at 8 p.m. EST. That's when you can see a two-part special about the 22 men who developed male breast cancer - most likely as a result of having lived at and consumed water from the base's supply from 1957 to 1987.

Camp Lejeune 's water supply was polluted from 1957 until 1987 by TCE, a degreasing solvent, and PCE, a dry cleaning agent. The chemicals apparently came from a dry cleaning store near the base, according to the government.
