How does the "effectiveness of measure" relate to "making an effort?"

Some contractors often refer to making an effort based on the plans rather assessing the effective of the measures.  For example, placing a  curbside drop inlet protection of a newly constructed road which will be accepted on the surface would be considered making an effort.  However, there are challenges that occur which raise the question of effectiveness of the measures.  This challenge typically occurs at the initial grading adjacent to a sag in the newly installed road.  Below a contractor was required to clean up under two different conditions.  The photograph on the left depicts a heavy sediment load in sack and not on the bottom of the box.  The photograph on the right depicts a heavy sediment load in the sack and on the bottom of the box.  Both measures in the sag of the road met the criteria of "making an effort."  However, both measures in this particular situation required moving resources from production to clean up.
