What is Riprap (Rip Rap)?

Riprap – also known as rip rap – is rock or other material used to protect shorelines, pilings, streambeds, bridge abutments, and other shoreline structures against ice or water erosion. Riprap is made from a variety of rock types, commonly limestone, or granite. Rip rap is used to protect shorelines from erosion by the lakes, river or streams. There are large rocks at the toe of the rip rap wall on the lake bed and a variety of smaller size rocks that make up the rest of the riprap wall going to the top of the shoreline. Riprap is definitely the most effective method of preserving your real estate on lake or river.
