Dingell Wants More Hearings On Camp Lejeune Water

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A Michigan lawmaker wants congressional leaders to hold more hearings on water contamination at Camp Lejeune.
 

Democratic Rep. John Dingell has sent a letter to the leaders of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce asking for the hearings. He cited a report by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry which outlines the contamination that's led to a long-running dispute between former residents and the Marines Corps.
 

TCE, an industrial solvent now known as a human carcinogen, likely first exceeded the maximum contaminant level in August 1953, but evidence in the report shows its presence in the water supply might date as far back as November 1948.
 

A copy of the report was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press. The agency was scheduled to release the report Friday.
