R&K recently completed a shoreline protection project for the US Army Corps of Engineers at the Red Rock Reservoir located just outside Pella, Iowa. Located on the Des Moines River, this is the largest lake in the state of Iowa. Project scope included shot rock and riprap protection of two select areas on the lake shoreline, a cemetery, and a public recreational area. Slopes were established with base rock, and a newly utilized gradation of 1600# riprap was placed as final protection. With the help of local truckers and Cantera Aggregates rock quarry, the project was completed quickly and successfully.
