Rip rap is mainly used for erosion control and prevention along shorelines and sloped areas where water and harsh weather conditions may cause disruption. Rip rap’s strength makes it hard to move, providing slope and soil stability along shorelines of creeks, rivers, streams and lakes by absorbing the impact of wave energy. The openings between the rip rap rocks slow water flow, lessening its ability for abrasion. Rip rap may also help prevention of unwanted foliage and vegetation.
Installation of rip rap can aid in channel flow control and guided water drainage. Rip rap rocks are placed in the path of water to slow water velocity in order to properly direct water movement to its destination
