Riprap Picture

Rip rap is commonly used to protect soil from erosion in areas of concentrated runoff. It consists of a layer of large stones interlocking together and acts as a barrier on slopes that are unstable because of seepage problems or in areas that are receiving a large concentrated flow of water.

This Rip Rap Program has been set up by the City of Duluth to assist property owners in maintaining drainage easements on their property. Under the Rip Rap Program, the City's Stormwater Utility will provide a single load (approximately 15-18 tons) of Type III rip rap delivered to a single property for the erosion protection of a drainage easement. An HOA is eligible for up to ten loads of rip rap delivered to a single common location. Type III rip rap stone is generally the size of a football up to the size of a basketball. For more details, please see below:
