Rip Rap

Rip Rap

Rip rap, large sized stone or boulders, is used extensively to control erosion. 

Controlling erosion is important to the integrity and safety of many constructed facilities including the slopes of earth dams and embankments, the piers and abutments of bridges crossing waterways, natural or manmade channels, and shorelines. Rip rap for erosion control is available in many Graymont quarries.
