Camp Lejeune Lawsuits

The water supply for military personnel, their families, and other civilians stationed at the North Carolina Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base was heavily contaminated. The water contained dangerously toxic levels of:

Perchloroethylene (PCE)

This industrial degreaser has been classified as likely carcinogen by the EPA.


Toluene is another degreaser linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other cancers.

Trichloroethylene (TCE)

This solvent is used for decreasing metal components and is linked with kidney and liver cancer.


Benzene is a known cancer-causing agent linked to high rates of blood-based cancers and leukemia.

Vinyl chloride

This colorless gas is used for making PVC and is linked to an increased risk of lung cancer, lymphoma, brain cancer, leukemia, and hepatic angiosarcoma.

There is evidence that the Navy was aware or had every reason to be aware of the contaminated water supply at Camp Lejeune. The Navy knew that it was unsuitable for human consumption yet did nothing to correct things, placing millions at risk.
