What Happened?

According to the EPA, ABC One-Hour Cleaners served as a small family-owned dry-cleaning business. The Site consisted of three buildings that housed separate activities: the front, middle, and north buildings. The middle building housed the dry-cleaning operations which included the use of the washer and septic tank system. Tetrachloroethylene (PCE), a common dry-cleaning solvent, was used as a part of the operations and was improperly released into the soil and groundwater by the septic tank system. PCE was also improperly buried outside the middle building. [CA1]  These improper disposal practices resulted in soil and groundwater contamination.

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) at the CDC:

ATSDR’s Position on the Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune: It is ATSDR’s position that past exposures from the 1950s through February 1985 to trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, and other contaminants in the drinking water at the Camp Lejeune likely increased the risk of cancers (kidney, multiple myeloma, leukemias, and others), adverse birth outcomes, and other adverse health effects of residents (including infants and children), civilian workers, Marines and Naval personnel at Camp Lejeune.
