Friends of Civilian Exposure, Happy Birthday to us! I’m proud to report that Civilian…
At toxic cleanup sites across the country, environmental agencies have allowed groundwater contamination to go untreated and slowly diminish over time — a strategy that saves money for polluters but could cost taxpayers dearly and jeopardize drinking water supplies.
What about service members like me? I’m trying to get tested for PCE and TCE. What can I do? That’s a good question. Unfortunately, there’s not much that can be done unless your exposure is immediate. If the exposure happened years (or decades) ago, such as the case with Camp Lejeune victims, then it is likely that it will be very hard to locate traces of the chemicals in your system today. However, that doesn’t mean that damage from exposure doesn’t exist.
