Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Camp Lejeune (NC) dose reconstruction
Experts mapping poisons in base water

ATLANTA - An independent panel of engineers and scientists are
evaluating a federal agency's efforts to map Camp Lejeune's water system
so researchers can pinpoint which sections of the supply were
contaminated from 1968 to 1985.

The panel was formed to respond to the federal Agency for Toxic
Substances and Disease Registry's efforts at "modeling" the Camp Lejeune
water system. The modeling is necessary due to "lack of historical,
contaminant-specific data at Camp Lejeune," according to an ATSDR presentation.

Morris Maslia, ATSDR's project officer for the Exposure-Dose
Reconstruction Program, told the panel Monday to determine which parts
of the base were contaminated with cleaning solvents and other
chemicals, the degree of contamination, duration of contamination, and
the distribution of exposure to contaminated water.
