Killinger Creek begins just south of Rt. 322 and east of Rt. 117.  Traversing a number of sizeable grain & dairy farms with substantial numbers of livestock, it flows north and passes under Rt. 422 just west of the North Londonderry Township Wastewater Treatment Plant, which treats about 900,000 gallons of wastewater per day, mainly from Palmyra, and discharges slightly less than that (about 850,000 gallons per day) into Killinger Creek.

Drainage Area: 15 square miles

Stream Length:  4.2 miles point-to-point

Elevation at Origin: 459.3 ft.

Elevation at End: 442.9 ft.
