Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Crisis Exposure Period and Covered Areas
The hazardous chemicals responsible for the terrible illnesses suffered by victims were discovered in the base water after several rounds of testing in 1982. The volatile organic compounds in the water were later localized to treatments facilities serving the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune community, specifically affecting housing communities:
Many families who lived in the communities were unaware they had consumed contaminated water, and many didn’t experience the effects until they were older and no longer in active-duty service.
Who is Eligible to Benefit from the Camp Lejeune Justice Act
Those who lived or worked on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune during the nearly 35-year exposure period and have been diagnosed with a serious illness could have been exposed to carcinogenic groundwater.
The contamination period was from 1953 to 1987, with many affected individuals linked to several housing communities on the base. Some of the most severe illnesses and chronic diseases have been linked to exposure to the caustic and dangerous chemicals found in the groundwater on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Unfortunately, many of the first victims of this negligent incident didn’t know they were exposed to these poisons. Even still, our Camp Lejeune water contamination benefit attorneys are dedicated to helping all victims fight this injustice.
