C. Caramanico & Sons, Inc. was chosen to restore the deteriorating masonry along Little Crum Creek. The old walls were removed and a new granite rip-rap was installed. The rip-rap stabilizes the sloped shoreline and protects it from erosion during heavy rainfall and storms. Live stakes were installed into the rip-rap to secure the stone. The stakes also hide the stone behind an attractive layer of foliage and improve the appearance of the entire slope. Any damage to the lawn that occurred during the construction process was restored at the end of the operation.
