TOXIC WATER AT CAMP LEJEUNE

Overview:

The Marine Corps’ Camp Lejeune is the site of one of the worst water contamination cases in recent US history. The base was a frequent pollution spot where oil, industrial wastewater, and toxic chemicals used as degreasers and solvents were all knowingly dumped in the local storm drains between 1952 and 1987, contaminating the local water supply for 35 years.

The military base was labeled as a major polluter by the Environmental Protection Agency. Reports from 1980 discuss how buried fuel tanks could leak and taint the drinking water in the surrounding areas.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021

Anyone who resided at the base between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, for at least 30 days is able to pursue legal action, should they provide the necessary evidence of damage or harm from the contaminated water. If the documentation is enough to suggest there is a relationship between the contaminated water and the sustained injuries, those victims or their legal representative may qualify for damages caused by this governmental negligence.
