Price tag for deferred maintenance of assets in US NP System balloons to $22B

In the roughly three years since the National Park Service under the Trump administration decided it wasn't helpful to announce the dollar amount of deferred maintenance in the National Park System, that number has nearly doubled, to roughly $22 billion, in part due to a new calculation formula.

The Park Service revealed that figure -- $21.8 billion -- Monday evening in a press release about efforts to reduce the backlog. To do so, the agency said, it has "implemented a new and improved assessment process that provides a more complete and timely understanding of facility conditions and the cost to repair them."
