Halliburton Cited in Iraq Contamination

WASHINGTON -- Troops and civilians at a U.S. military base in Iraq were exposed to contaminated water last year and employees for the responsible contractor, Halliburton, couldn't get their company to inform camp residents, according to interviews and internal company documents.

Halliburton, the company formerly headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, disputes the allegations about water problems at Camp Junction City, in Ramadi, even though they were made by its own employees and documented in company e-mails.

Did Halliburton Sell Dirty Water?

By JULIANNE DONOFRIO

Jan. 23, 2006 - Were thousands of troops and civilians stationed at a U.S. military base in Iraq exposed to contaminated water? The answer is yes, according to whistle-blowers testifying before Congress today.

Kellogg Brown & Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton Co., has a long-term, multibillion-dollar contract with the U.S. military to provide logistical support to personnel in Iraq. The Senate Democratic Policy Committee is looking into allegations that KBR failed to act on reports of water problems at Camp Ar Ramadi, also known as Camp Junction City, and home to more than 5,000 troops. This is not the first time the company, once headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, has come under scrutiny. Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., who chaired today's session, held several public inquiries into Halliburton's practices last year.

Former Halliburton employees are alleging KBR provided troops at Camp Junction City with bottled water for drinking and cooking, but that internal company documents show the water provided for other purposes, such as showering, shaving and laundry, was not treated.

Ben Carter, a water-purification specialist and former Halliburton employee who worked at Camp Junction City, discovered the problem last year. A day after he ran a test on the base's water supply, Carter sent an "incident report" to Halliburton officials in a March 24, 2005, e-mail.
