Camp Lejeune, North Carolina

U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina was established in 1942. In 1982, the Marine Corps discovered specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water provided by two of the eight water treatment plants on base.

Water from the Tarawa Terrace Treatment Plant was primarily contaminated by PCE (perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene). More...

Benzene contamination of soil and groundwater at Camp Lejeune has emerged as an important issue. ATSDR is currently reviewing relevant information and data about the sources of benzene contamination on base. Information and data sources include the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC), Department of Navy (DON), North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, consultant and contractors to the USMC and the DON, and the Camp Lejeune Community Assistance Panel. Information and data will be reviewed as quickly as possible so ATSDR can move forward with health studies on base.
