What Happened at Camp Lejeune?

(U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs)

From the 1950s through the 1980s, people living or working at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune were potentially exposed to drinking water contaminated with industrial solvents, benzene, and other chemicals.  Drinking-water systems that supplied two areas of housing were contaminated.

Two on-base water wells that were shut down in 1985 had these chemicals:
