Military, health agency in PR war over base's tainted water Barbara Barrett McClatchy Newspapers January 31, 2011WASHINGTON - Congressional investigators will meet with Navy officials as soon as next week to pressure the military to reconsider a public relations booklet on past water contamination at Marines Base Camp Lejeune, N.C., that they say is misleading.
The booklet contains inaccurate information and could hurt scientists' efforts to survey thousands of former Lejeune residents and their family members about their health, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, an arm of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
Thomas Sinks, deputy director of ATSDR, asked the Marines Corps two weeks ago to retract the booklet and pull it off a military website dedicated to disseminating public information about the contamination.
