The Croyden TCE Spill site is located in Bristol Township, Buck County, Pennsylvania. VOC contamination in the ground water has been detected over a 3.5-square mile area predominantly residential with an estimated 3,000 residents. The study area is bordered on the south by the Delaware River. Neshaminy Creek, which borders the study area to the west, and Hog Run Creek which flows through the focused area of investigation, both discharge to the river. Although the source of contamination has not been identified, the contaminant plume appears to be flowing south-southeast into the East Branch of Hog Run Creek and probably into the Delaware River. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are TCE and PCE. The selected remedial action for the site includes connecting approximately 13 residences to the public water supply system via the construction of new water services lines, mains, hydrants, and valves; and ground water monitoring to ensure that homes located outside of the TCE-contaminated zone will not be at risk from the migrating plume.
