Public Health Assessment (PHA) for MCB Camp LeJeune, NC

Dear Sir or Madam:
On January 20, 2017, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) released its completed "Public Health Assessment for Camp Lejeune Drinking Water, U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina" (
The PHA evaluates whether past volatile organic compound (VOC) exposures to chemicals at Camp Lejeune likely resulted in exposure-related disease; assesses additional VOC exposure scenarios requested by the Camp Lejeune Community Assistance Panel (CAP); and evaluates more recent exposure to lead in drinking water at Camp Lejeune (2005-2013). For more detailed information and findings, please visit the ATSDR Drinking Water PHA factsheet at
This PHA is one of several health initiatives ATSDR has recently completed, or is expected to complete in the next several years. For more information about these studies, please visit or call (800) 232-4636.
To contact the Department of Veterans Affairs to learn more about health care and other benefits, please visit or call (877) 222-8387 (health care) or (800) 827-1000 (benefits).
