Burr, Hagan Question Navy About Lejeune Water Study

Both of North Carolina's Senators are weighing in on the new water report about Camp Lejeune.

The National Research Council report released last weekend concluded there is no scientific evidence that chemicals in the well water aboard the Marine Corps base caused health problems.

Senator Richard Burr said Wednesday, the "study raises more questions than it answers." Senator Kay Hagan said Tuesday she could not stand behind the validity of the study.

Hagan and Burr, together, sent a letter to the Navy asking pointed questions about what the military knew about chemicals in the water, and when they knew it. The Senators have asked for a response by June 25.

Burr is a republican; Hagan is a democrat.
