The Marine Corps encourages all those who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune 1987 or before to register to receive notifications regarding the Camp Lejeune Historic Drinking Water. Please encourage family members or friends who were at Camp Lejeune during this period to also join the Notification Registry. If you have previously registered and your contact information is no longer current, please call the Camp Lejeune Water toll free number at (877) 261-9782 to speak with an operator who will assist you in updating your current information.
The Department of the Navy is funding two independent research initiatives. The CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is conducting a study to determine if there is an association between exposure to the water and certain adverse health effects. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is reviewing scientific evidence on associations between adverse health effects and historical data. More than 130,000 people are currently in the Notification Registry and the Marine Corps remains committed to reaching as many individuals as possible. Outreach efforts include paid advertising in military magazines and national newspapers, national media interviews and, press releases and a fully staffed call center available Monday through Friday.
