US military officials knew about contaminated water at Marine base

15 June 2007

As many as 1 million people were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, a US Marine Corps base in North Carolina, according to the US Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry in a document revealed at a hearing convened by the House Energy and Commerce Committee in Washington June 12. The figure is far higher than previous estimates.

Thousands of families from 1957 to 1987 drank water contaminated with toxins as much as 40 times above current safety standards. The military knew as soon as late 1980 or early 1981 that one of the base’s water treatments plants was polluted.

  2. Hi Victoria, I must confess this all sounds somewhat like the perpetuum mobile, which at various times various people claimed to have invented; but then there always turned out to be some glitch. Most important today in this thread, I’d say, is to support the Camp Lejeune pollution victims against the government.
