TCE is a cancer-causing substance that was found in the Camp Lejeune water supply between 1953 and 1987. The primary affected areas by TCE contamination include Tarawa Terrace, Hadnot Point, and Holcomb Boulevard housing areas. The contamination spread into homes, schools, workplaces, and other areas.
These communities were exposed to dangerously high levels of TCE, with water toxicity readings of hundreds of times more than the EPA recommended limit (EPA recommended limit: 5 parts-per-billion. Camp Lejeune water: 1,400 parts-per-billion).1

If you or a loved one have experienced any of the symptoms and were exposed to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, it is essential to seek medical attention.
Exposure to TCE has been directly linked to many health conditions, including Parkinson’s Disease, kidney cancer, liver cancer, and others.2
