Miscellaneous paperIntroduction: Rock of the same geological formation as that being quarried at the Huelsman Quarry lies within the reservoir area of the Carlyle Dam. If this stone were suitable for use as riprap it might result in a monetary saving to the Government. Results of tests on material from the Huelsman Quarry should be applicable to the material on the Government property. For this reason tests of ledge rock from the Huelsman Quarry for suitability for riprap were authorized in telephone conversation between A. J. Kochanski of the St. Louis District and Mr. T. B. Kennedy of the LMVD Materials and concrete Laboratory
