Unfortunately, during the time period from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987, Camp Lejeune had an unsafe water supply that resulted in up to a million people being exposed to contaminated water. Marines and their families as well as civilians working on the base were exposed to the tainted water through bathing and drinking. As a result of the exposure to the tainted water, many health problems developed in individuals including, infertility, cancer, miscarriages, ALS, and Parkinson’s Disease.
