Re. the story “Just-acquired tract eyed as commercial site” (April 21): Known locally as Job's Hole, that site in Harrison borders Little Bull Creek, which feeds into a stocked trout stream, Bull Creek.

I hope any development respects both creeks, which provide clean water to the Allegheny River.

Runoff from parking lots leads to more silt in streams, which kills trout, and higher water during storms, which kills downstream property values.
