Contaminated Water Supplies at Camp Lejeune: Assessing Potential Health Effects Preface Two water-supply systems on the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina were contaminated with the industrial solvents trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE). The contamination appears to have begun in the middle 1950s and continued until the middle 1980s, when contaminated supply wells were shut down. The sources of the contamination were an off-base dry-cleaning establishment and on-base industrial activities. Contaminated water was distributed to enlisted-personnel family housing, barracks for unmarried personnel, base administrative offices, schools, a hospital, industrial areas, and recreational areas. Many former residents and employees of the base have raised questions about whether health problems that they or members of their families have experienced could be related to their exposure to the contaminated water. A few studies have been performed on former residents of the bases, but they were focused only on selected birth and childhood health outcomes. As directed by Congress, the U.S. Navy requested a study by the National Research Council to review the scientific evidence on associations between historical data on prenatal, childhood, and adult exposures to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune and adverse health effects. In response to the Navy’s request, the National Research Council convened the Committee on Contaminated Drinking Water at Camp Lejeune, which prepared this report. The members of the committee were selected for their expertise in epidemiology, toxicology, exposure analysis, environmental health, groundwater modeling, biostatistics, and risk assessment (see Appendix A for biographic information on the members). To help the committee in its review, meetings were held in September and November 2007 and September 2008 to gather information from scientists and those who chose to inform the committee regarding their experiences in relation to the water contamination at Camp Lejeune. The committee is grateful to the people who gave presentations on their investigations into the contamination of the water supplies at Camp Lejeune and on general issues related to groundwater modeling, including a series of responses to followup queries from members of the committee: Frank Bove and Morris Maslia, of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR); Richard Clapp, of Boston University and a member of ATSDR’s community-assistance panel; Marcia Crosse, of the U.S. Government Accountability Office; and Mary Hill, of the U.S. Geological Survey. The committee also thanks the many former residents of and workers at Camp Lejeune who contributed their time to attend the public meetings and share their experiences and concerns (see Appendix B). In particular, the committee acknowledges Jerry Ensminger and Jeff Byron, who served as representatives of people who were unable to attend the meetings. The committee is thankful for the useful input from Amy Kyle, of the University of California at Berkeley, in the early deliberations of this study. It would also like to acknowledge the advice that it received from Michael Luster, formerly with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, who was a consultant to the committee on immunotoxicity issues. The U.S. Marine Corps provided the committee with support throughout the study. Kelly Dreyer and Scott Williams helped to coordinate a meeting at Camp Lejeune and responded to the committee’s requests for background information. The committee is grateful to the staff of the Installation and Environment Department at Camp Lejeune for providing a guided tour of the areas of the base where the sup-

This report has been reviewed in draft form by persons chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical expertise in accordance with procedures approved by the National Research Council’s Report Review Committee. The purpose of the independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institution in making its published report as sound as possible and to ensure that the report meets institutional standards of objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. We thank the following for their review of this report: John L. Adgate, University of Minnesota; Mary P. Anderson, University of Wisconsin; Richard Clapp, Boston University; Mary C. Hill, U.S. Geological Survey; Margot Krauss, consultant; Lawrence H. Lash, Wayne State University; Rosalind A. Schoof, Integral Consulting, Inc.; Michael A. Stoto, Georgetown University; Clifford Weisel, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey; and Raymand S. Yang, Colorado State University. Although the reviewers listed above have provided many constructive comments and suggestions, they were not asked to endorse the conclusions or recommendations, nor did they see the final draft of the report before its release. The review of the report was overseen by the review coordinator, George M. Rusch, Honeywell Inc., and the review monitor, George M. Hornberger, Vanderbilt University. Appointed by the National Research Council, they were responsible for making certain that an independent examination of the report was carried out in accordance with institutional procedures and that all review comments were carefully considered. Responsibility for the final content of the report rests entirely with the author committee and the institution. The committee is grateful for the assistance of National Research Council staff in preparing the report. In particular, Susan Martel, who served as project director, skillfully coordinated the project and contributed to the committee’s report, devoting patient, concerted effort to resolving the many controversies that evolved through the course of the project. Other staff members who contributed are James Reisa, director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology; Norman Grossblatt, senior editor; Mirsada Karalic-Loncarevic, manager of the Technical Information Center; Tamara Dawson, program associate; and Patrick Baur, research assistant. The committee members devoted substantial effort to the development of this report through rounds of discussion, deliberation, writing, and rewriting. They came to their task with a wide variety of perspectives based on disciplinary training, research pertaining to the chemicals and health effects of concern, and ideology; but all shared a commitment to bring the best knowledge possible to bear on important health issues and to assist the sponsor and former Camp Lejeune residents by offering an assessment and a scientific perspective that can help to bring this long-standing and sometimes contentious concern closer to a resolution. This report focuses on what scientific evidence can say about the causal relationship of past exposures and health outcomes. It is important to understand the difference between how scientific evidence is used in this context, compared to how it is used in the context of regulatory risk assessment and prevention. We should be clear that the evaluation we conducted was not for the purposes of regulatory risk assessment, and the prepublication version of this report may not have made this distinction clear enough to all readers. The following excerpt from the 2003 Institute of Medicine report, Gulf War and Health Volume 2 provides a useful explanation of this important distinction.2 Most laws enforced by regulatory agencies permit the agencies wide latitude in the choice of data used to prevent future disease or injury. In the present case, however, the goal is not prevention of risk, but rather the use of the best available data to categorize evidence for a relationship between a chemical exposure and the occurrence of an adverse health outcome in humans. Here, precautionary policies have no substantial role (at least not the same way that they have in regu- 2 This paragraph was added after the release of the prepublication to clarify an issue that confused some readers of the prepublication.

Therefore, studies in human populations played the dominant role for the committee in identifying the relevant associations. Experimental evidence may or may not provide support for epidemiologic conclusions. David A. Savitz, Chair Committee on Contaminated Drinking Water at Camp Lejeune
