All residences in Letterkenny Township that are not connected to public sewer must have their septic tanks pumped once every three years. Seasonal Cabins that have a signed affidavit only need to be pumped once every nine years.
In 2021, all township residences located in Letterkenny West, formerly known as the Horse Valley Area, are due to have their tanks pumped unless they have been pumped during the previous two years.
Letterkenny Township was divided into three sections when “Mandatory Pumping” began in 2007 for the purpose of record keeping. The sections were informally known as the Kensington Heights Area, the Horse Valley Area, and everyone else. Recently, the three sections were renamed for the purpose of clarity and evening out the numbers in each group.
The newly identified groups will not necessarily change the pumping schedule you are on unless you choose to change, but it may change when you receive a reminder postcard. Remember, this is only for residences not connected to public sewer provided by CFJMA, HTMA, or York Water. The new section names, along with the road names they comprise, are as follows:
Letterkenny East (Chambersburg Addresses, excluding Cumberland Hwy) – Funk Road, Iron Bridge Road, Keefer Road, Lawyer Road, Limekiln Road, McKenrick Drive, Nyesville Road, Orrstown Road, Rocky Spring Road, Rotz Road, and Sheffield Drive
Letterkenny West (Upper Strasburg and some Orrstown Addresses) – Bear Valley Road, Gilbert Road, Keefer Road, Lower Horse Valley Road, Shinabrook Road, Skinners Lane, Upper Horse Valley Road, and Upper Strasburg Road
Letterkenny Central (Orrstown, Pleasant Hall, and Remaining Addresses) – Church Road, Creek Road, Cumberland Hwy, Forge Hill Road, Mountain Road, Park Road, Pine Road, Sandy Mount Road, Skyline Drive, Tim Road, Upper Strasburg Road, and Wye Road
