Here the operator loads a Richmond Sand & Stone truck with rip rap from the cofferdam. The stone will be trucked to Richmond's Dept. of Public Works for use on other public projects and will ultimately be reused at Horseshoe Falls and Kenyon Mill next year. It is a win-win situation. The town gets some useful material at no cost and the project gets free long term material storage and will realize a cost savings on Shannock's upcoming fish passage projects by not having to repurchase this expensive rock.
