Camp Lejeune Historic Drinking Water
The Marine Corps encourages all those who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune before 1987 to register to receive notifications regarding Camp Lejeune Historic Drinking Water. Please encourage family or friends who were at Camp Lejeune during this period to also join the Notification Registry.
The Department of the Navy is funding two independent research initiatives. The CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is conducting a health study to determine if there is an association between in-utero exposure to the water and certain adverse health effects. The National Academy of Sciences’ National Research Council (NRC) has reviewed scientific evidence on associations between adverse health effects and historical data.

Mesothelioma is cancer caused by exposure to absestos that most often forms in the lining of the lungs or abdomen. As it grows and spreads, different physical and mental effects are felt in the body.
