Killinger Creek

   This page offers a photographic journey up Killinger Creek, from its mouth at the Quittie to its headwaters just south of Route 322 and just east of Route 117 (South Forge Road).  The creek runs through an agriculturally rich & intensively cultivated area and receives large quantities of agricultural runoff. It also receives an average of some 800,000 gallons of treated water daily from the North Londonderry Sewage Treatment Plant, just south of Rt. 422 between Annville & Palmyra.

   The only photos available at present were taken from near the bridge at Killinger Road, just south of Route 422, as seen on the modified Google satellite map at right. The yellow footprints indicate the photos' vantage points.

A small section of Killinger Road can be seen at left. The photo below looks southwest. The next photo looks straight west.
