What Happened at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina?

The US Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, NC has been in operation since 1942. With a population of almost 35,000 in 2020, it is the largest Marine base on the East Coast. In 1982, it was first discovered that the drinking water at Camp Lejeune had been dangerously contaminated since 1953 by volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

However, the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR) recognized the problem only in 1997 when it publicly issued a health assessment notice about the contamination.

PCE Contamination at Tarawa Terrace Plant

Investigators found that the water at the Tarawa Terrace water treatment facility was contaminated by a VOC called perchloroethylene (PCE). This hazardous chemical is commonly used for metal de-greasing and dry cleaning. A detailed analysis by the ATSDR showed that the PCE concentrations in the water in the area exceeded the maximum contamination levels (determined by the Environmental Protection Agency) from 1957 to 1987.

TCE Contamination at Hadnot Point Plant

At the Hadnot Point water treatment facility, the primary contaminant was identified as trichloroethylene (TCE). The water in the area also had secondary contaminations, including benzene, TCE, and vinyl chloride. The VOC called TCE is commonly used for cleaning metal components. Investigations showed that the contamination at this plant had occurred from multiple sources and continued to occur from 1953 to 1985.

Beginning of Accountability of the Negligent Parties

In 2019, the Janey Ensminger Act was passed with an aim to compel the Veterans Administration (VA) to accept the shocking findings of the ATSDR regarding the correlation between extensive and prolonged water contamination and the illnesses and injuries suffered by the unsuspecting victims who were exposed to it.

The Act, which sought to ensure accountability to veterans and their loved ones, was named in memory of Janey Ensminger, the daughter of a member of the Marine Corps. Nine-year-old Janey died from leukemia after being exposed to contaminated water at the base. The Act allows for VA benefits for medical care related to Camp Lejeune toxic exposure to be extended to non-military family members.

More Justice is on the Way for the Victims and their Families

In 2021, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act was passed with the aim to deliver further justice to the victims and their families. According to this Act, any person who lived, worked, or was otherwise exposed for at least 30 days between the period of the 1st of August, 1953 and the 31st of December, 1987, has the right to seek financial damages by filing a lawsuit in the US District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Under this Act, a large number of victims are now able to pursue their claims for injury and illness. According to experts, virtually anyone who served in the US Marine Corps, and received combat training, most likely went to Camp Lejeune. Clearly, it’s no longer a state-specific matter restricted to NC law. It is now a federal issue.
