Welcome to Dickinson Township

Dickinson Township is located in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.

Proof of pumping and/or inspection shall be provided by the owner of the individual system within 30 days of the date of service to the Township.
