In the issue of sedimentation, can lead to problems such as the destruction of fish habitat, pollution of drinking water supplies, clog storm drain inlets, and so on Figure 1: Deforested area in Amazon basin Erosion of soil and sedimentation in streams impacts related to the loss of vegetation, damage of drinking water supplies, are 1. Stream bank erosion caused by an increase in storm water runoff. 2. Alteration of existing drainage patterns. 3. Destabilization of steep slopes. 4. Reduced potential for groundwater recharge. 5. Runoff of chemicals into water supplies. For example, Petroleum and other chemicals 6. Runoff of nutrients into water supplies. For example, Eutrophication of water Figure 2: Soil sedimentation and stream bank erosion Lack of effective combination of erosion and sediment control: An effective method of erosion and sediment control is crucial during construction. Lack of such efficiency could be detrimental both to the human and animal life. Figure 3: Ineffective erosion and sediment control II. Human Errors Human errors typically can be found in everywhere people are working on any projects. In general, human errors are divided into two types: unintentional and intentional mistakes. Understanding the types of human errors and learn from the causes of those types, it
