The Baghurst Drive Site (EPA ID No. PAN000306939) is located at and around the intersection of Baghurst Drive and Hendricks Road and in a rural residential area of Harleysville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The Site consists of a contaminated groundwater plume that is affecting private drinking water wells. The groundwater plume includes the hazardous substances 1,1,1-trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA), 1,1-dichloroethene (1,1-DCE), 1,1-dichloroethane (1,1-DCA), trichloroethylene (TCE), and 1,4-dioxane. The Site was added to the National Priorities List (NPL) on September 16, 2014. In June 2014, a removal site evaluation was performed for the residential drinking water wells that are impacted by the contaminated groundwater plume. The plume is reported to have impacted 27 residential drinking water wells, including a common well that services 10 residences.

EPA is planning on installing an alternate water source to provide water to the affected residents.
