About the Case

Up to 1 million people were exposed to contaminated water and harmful chemicals at Camp Lejeune. On June 16, 2022, the Senate passed the Honor Our PACT Act to “improve health care and benefits for veterans exposed to toxic substances, and for other benefits.” This Bill allows those exposed to contaminated water for at least 30 days to sue and recover damages.

People who served, lived, or worked at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 were exposed to drinking water containing toxic chemicals and high levels of carcinogens.  These harmful chemicals include:

  • Methylene chloride – a chemical solvent used to remove paint
  • Trichloroethylene – a metal cleaner
