What kind of document search is being conducted at Camp Lejeune?

The Marine Corps goal is to consolidate all pertinent documents in one location to expedite response to requests from other agencies and multiple searches have been conducted for documents that may relate to the drinking water issue. To further ensure that the most comprehensive document search has been conducted, the Marine Corps hired a contractor to conduct a search of the entire Base. The contractor developed a search criteria designed to identify documents related to the water contamination issue and then conducted a search of the entire Base. Both ATSDR and the GAO have full access to documents retrieved in this search.
