Rip Rap


Fish Creek Excavating carries all existing sizes of rip rap for your erosion control or waterway project needs. Our material meets all Alberta Transportation size and durability requirements. Used to protect against water erosion, heavy Rip Rap rock is manufactured to armor culverts, shorelines, streambeds or bridge abutments.
