Camp Lejeune; VA tested for only 4 chemicals: TCE, perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride;


Diseases Associated With Exposure to Contaminants in the Water Supply at Camp Lejeune

“As stated in the proposed rule, VA is only addressing the contamination of the water supplies by the four chemicals of interest (i.e., TCE, perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride) that occurred between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, as a result of on-base industrial activities and an off-base dry cleaning facility. Exposure events unrelated to the specified date range and sources of contamination are unrelated to the subject and scope of this rulemaking; therefore VA makes no change in response to this comment.”
