Camp Lejeune is a United States Marine Corps Base located in North Carolina. From August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987, it is estimated that over 1 million people, both civilians and military members, were affected by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. This may include veterans, family members, and employees on the base or MCAS New River.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act has been signed into law as part of the PACT Act. This legislation allows individuals who served, lived, worked, or were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River for at least 30 days between 1953-1987 to obtain compensation for harm that was caused by this exposure.

The groundwater at Camp Lejeune became contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) called perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE), suspected carcinogens. This was caused by spills and improper disposal of dry-cleaning solvents and degreasers by a nearby dry-cleaning company. Also, oil and industrial contaminants were discharged into the storm drains. Chemists didn’t thoroughly test Camp Lejeune’s drinking water until 1980, and by 1984, news of this contamination was public.
