Rip Rap stone refers to rock that is extremely rugged, and does not get washed away or immersed in the soil easily thus providing beautiful stabilization for stormwater ponds.

Rainwater can erode the soil on a stormwater detention/retention ponds embank causing it to give way.  The force from the rainfall washes away soil causing erosion and making  the ponds boundaries weak and unable to provide protection from flooding. 

Rip Rap provides protection within the stormwater pond. It can help reduce sediment in the pond, while providing stabilization for the embankment, the plunge pools and helps in preventing erosion.

There are other embankment stabilization forms that can be used alongside the use of Rip rap to ensure your pond has proper erosion control.
