TOXIC EXPOSURE ISSUES ON MILITARY BASES

Many military bases have hazardous materials including:
  • Jet fuel
  • Toxic metals
  • Chemical compounds like flame retardants
  • Pesticides
  • And more
Congress passed the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) to create programs that could clean up "Superfund" sites, like military bases, where hazardous materials are common.
The Environmental Protection Agency oversees the enforcement of CERCLA.
Veterans who suffer illnesses and injuries from toxic exposure on base may be entitled to benefits.
