Camp Lejeune Victim Impact

In August 2022 Camp Lejeune announced it recorded 8,964 deaths between 1979 and 2008 stemming from the contamination.

Government estimates placed settlements and verdicts in the Camp Lejeune litigation ultimately costing more than $20 billion. As many as 1 million Marines, family members and others were exposed to the contaminated drinking water, the Navy has said. As of February 2024, more than 1,400 Camp Lejeune lawsuits and more than 152,000 administrative claims have been filed nationwide – more are expected.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is responsible for the water contamination at Camp Lejeune. The Marines were using a chemical called trichloroethylene (TCE) in their dry-cleaning operations at the base, and this chemical eventually contaminated the groundwater. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported in 2014 that it found the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune significantly increased the risk of possibly contracting multiple diseases, including:




Alongside birth defects, autism and aplastic anemia

Pact Act

The Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act , signed into law in 2022, provides $797 million for veterans, surviving family members and others exposed to toxic compounds while serving their country. Camp Lejeune (among other toxic compound exposure sites) falls under this broader promise.

30 Years / >1 Million Victims / One base

Located near Jacksonville, North Carolina, the U.S. Military Training Facility Camp Lejeune was built in 1941. Its 14 miles of beaches make the base ideal for amphibious assault training, and located between two deep-water ports, it allows for fast deployments. While the facility was open and accessed by multiple branches of military service, it was heavily used by the Marine Corps.

The VA reports that between 1953 and 1987, veterans and their families and civil servants living/serving at Camp Lejeune were exposed to a variety of toxins in the water supply.

In 1982, the Marine Corps discovered specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The contamination of drinking water at Camp Lejeune started in the early 1950s, and the most contaminated wells were shut down in 1985.

Supply wells were contaminated by multiple sources: leaking underground storage tanks, industrial area spills, and waste disposal sites. Contaminants found in the drinking water included PCE and benzene and TCE degradation products trans-1,2-DCE (t-1,2-dichloroethylene) and vinyl chloride.
