Victims To Discuss Camp Lejeune Water Contamination To Govt. Panel

Posted February 16, 2005

— Thursday will be a big day for a Wilmington woman and others who lived at Camp Lejeune at a time when drinking water was contaminated.

Terry Dyer said she suffered a lifetime of serious illnesses because of the water. Dyer is going to Atlanta, Ga., to tell her story to a federal panel now looking into the matter.

"This was a disaster. It was a national disaster, and it's still going on," she said.

Camp Lejeune discovered the contamination in the early 1980s.

Officials believe thousands of people may have been affected.
