Abstract

Best management practices (BMPs) for erosion and sediment control are measures designed to reduce the amount of sediment leaving a construction site and prevent that sediment from entering nearby surface waters. Failure modes of these BMPs were used to develop a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA). By conducting a FMEA, all possible failure modes and resulting consequences were determined for the selected control measures. Risk priority numbers (RPN) were used to determine the relative risk of failure for each measure. These RPNs for the different control measures could be used to aid the user in the selection of an appropriate set of BMPs for the given situation.
