Between the years of 1953 to 1987, many Marines, sailors and families stationed at Camp Lejeune were exposed to contaminated tap water that led to serious illnesses. In 1982, testing revealed that three separate water distribution systems that supplied water to Camp Lejeune (including the housing areas of Hadnot Point, Tarawa Terrace and Holcomb Boulevard) were highly contaminated with toxic chemicals.
