Senate To Hold Hearing On Camp LeJeune Tainted Water

The suspected link between tainted water and cluster of men with breast cancer at Camp Lejeune will be examined during senate hearing Tuesday, according to the News and Observer.

The Senate's Environmental and Public Works Committee will hold a hearing on a bill to improve testing and reporting on suspected cancer clusters.

Officials suspect chemicals from a dry cleaner on base made the water unhealthy. Camp Lejeune capped the tainted water wells in the mid 1980's.
