What Toxic Substances Caused Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune?

According to a study conducted by The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the drinking water at Camp Lejeune contained trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), dichloroethylene (DCE), vinyl chloride, benzene, and other toxic contaminants.

Not everyone exposed to these chemicals will develop health issues. The side effects of chemical exposure will depend on:

  • Length of chemical exposure
  • Method of chemical exposure
  • How much you were exposed to
  • When you were exposed
  • Personal traits and habits

Unfortunately, those exposed to these chemicals in the water at Camp Lejeune likely experienced prolonged exposure, leading to a higher chance of developing health issues. For more information on the toxic chemicals in the water at Camp Lejeune, call The Barnes Firm today at (800) 800-0000.
