ABSTRACT:
Painted Turtle Pond is a 1.1-hectare (2.7-acre) man-made pond located on the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), Woodbridge, Virginia. This 234-hectare (579-acre) refuge is part of the Potomac River NWR Complex. The Occoquan Bay NWR was established in 1998, through the transfer of the property from the U.S. Army as a result of the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC). Under BRAC, contaminant issues on the Refuge have been investigated under the direction of the BRAC Cleanup Team, which includes representatives of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service=s Chesapeake Bay Field Office (CBFO), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE).
