DescriptionThe Upper Nisqually River Levee Retrofit adds deflectors to the bank of the river. The deflectors reduce water velocity and direct water away from the shoreline, slowing shoreline erosion and reducing damage to the levee. Washington Rock provided materials to contractor Active Construction.

HighlightsWashington Rock produced over 5,800 tons of oversized quarry rock especially for this project. Each rock weighed between 6 and 15 tons, more than double to quadruple the size of the largest quarry rock typically offered. We are one of the few mines in the region that can produce boulders on demand at this size and with the correct specifications.
