Summary
On the basis of questionnaire responses, GAO estimates that, as of the beginning of fiscal year 1990, the Forest Service had a $449 million backlog of unmet maintenance and reconstruction needs, more than double the amount the agency reported in 1986. Insufficient resources, both funding and staffing, were the primary cause of the backlog, according to Forest Service officials. Little of the agency's overall recreation budget is available to address backlog needs, while other factors, such as aging facilities and increased usage, are adding to it. The effects of deferred maintenance include health and safety hazards, resource damage, and diminished recreational experiences. Ultimately, deferred maintenance could result in the loss of sites. At current funding levels, GAO believes that not only will the agency be unable to eliminate the existing backlog, but also the backlog will continue to grow
