Work on Stone Riprap Stops; Dirt Mounds Mar Landscape

Maintenance Department Will Try to Halt Eresion in Spring

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Work on a stone "riprap" to check crosion of the Charles River bank near the Weeks' Bridge, has been discontinued until spring. Soft ground has forced the cessation of this work, which was started in September. With the completion of the barrier, engineers hope to half erosion, whose steady gains of several feet yearly were threatening to undermine the foundations of the Business School.

The mounds of dirt now piled up in rows along the river bank will continue to mar the landscape until spring. This earth, taken from excavations in Arlington, will be spread along the bank to foster the growth of grass. The growing of grass and the building of a stone barrier are the twin measures being used by workers of the Maintenance Division of the Metropolitan District Commission to check crosion, beautify the river bank, and preserve the Business School.
