Crushed Stone……A Natural Component of a Clean & Healthy Environment

In addition to being a major component of virtually every construction project, aggregate products such as those produced by RiverStone are instrumental in the efforts to ensure we have clean air to breathe and clean water for our daily needs.  RiverStone produces limestone which is used to reduce the stack emissions of coal burning power plants.  Farmers use our agricultural lime to maintain a balanced PH in the soil of their fields. Proper use of agricultural lime reduces the amount of man made fertilizer necessary to produce our food crops, thereby reducing the occurrence of hypoxia, which can harm the fish stock and other aquatic species in our streams and rivers.
