Recreation is a component of some of the agencies water resources projects whose primary objectives include navigation, flood control, and hydroelectric power. For the Corps and Bureau construction projects receiving appropriation for fiscal year 1982, recreation construction backlogs totaled 755 million and 188 million, respectively, as of the beginning of fiscal year 1982. These amounts represented about 3 percent of the agencies estimated total costs for the projects with unfunded recreation components.
