Superfund Site: CROYDON TCE

Superfund Site Profile


The Croydon TCE Site is located in a 3.5 square mile area within the southernmost portion of Bristol Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The area includes residential, commercial, and industrial properties.  EPA identified the Croydon TCE site in 1985 after an investigation at a neighboring Rohm & Haas industrial plant revealed a plume of groundwater contamination that did not appear to be associated with that plant. Elevated levels of volatile organic contaminants (VOCs), primarily trichloroethene (TCE), have been detected in the groundwater and in surface water. However, to date, no source has been identified.  This site was proposed to the National Priorities List on September 18, 1985 and formally added to the list on June 10, 1986.
