There are two main things associated with Oak Ridge, TN. The band, the Oak Ridge Boys, and the Manhattan Project. In 1942, the Second World War was waging out of control, and the United States, Great Britain, and Canada joined together to develop the atomic bomb.

Major General Leslie Groves who was the authority for the project chose the site due to the accessibility to transportation services and utilities that were available due to the recent completion of the Norris Dam. Plus, the town has a 17-mile valley that provided natural defenses against any of the potential disasters associated with developing technology.

TN Scientific Heritage

Our city is still important to the advancement of the science and technology industries. In 1947, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) handed the reins over to the Roane Anderson Company.

The Roane Anderson Company created an entire community built with a government contract. In 1959, the little town was incorporated and adopted a city council structure and separated from the federal government.

Tourism and a Drain Cleaning Service

The scientific heritage of Oak Ridge, TN led to the opening of the American Museum of Science and Energy and the Manhattan Project National Historical Park that documents the pros and cons of atomic energy and its applications. Visitors are drawn to the natural beauty of this part of Appalachia for the wildlife and the scientific history.

World’s Fastest Supercomputer

The Department of Energy operates a national laboratory which is a technological research organization that provides efforts to maintain national security. In 2018, at IBM the lab introduced the world’s quickest supercomputer named Summit which can perform 200,000 trillion calculations every second!

Clogged drains

Residential and commercial drain and sewage systems need to be cleaned frequently. Bad storms can cause overflows because storm drain collects and reroutes the extra water away from the property.

Storm drains get obstructed with debris like trash, twigs, and leaves. Obstructed drains trap foul water and produce unpleasant smells and draw mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes lay larvae in stagnant water that can increase the possibility of health risks and excess water may damage the property and potentially erode the foundations of your home.

Why a Drain Cleaning Service Is Important to Optimal Plumbing

It is a natural part of the plumbing system. Stuff like hair, sticky materials like oatmeal or grease gather together and create a clog. Oddly enough, even stuff like soap and detergent can obstruct drains. The position of the pipes can prevent the flow of liquid from away enough causing issues.

Customer Feedback

“First things first, I’m a long-term customer of My Professional Plumber and have relied on them to completely overhaul our plumbing. The pipes in our home were far too small for our family size. We had no idea that plumbing pipes could be too small, but it is a common problem for older homes.

I was a bit upset when less than a year later, our kitchen sink stopped draining well. I called My Professional Plumber and explained the situation and my ire. The team sent a technician out immediately. He was there within the hour. A clump of coffee grounds had merged with built-up dish detergent from the dishwasher causing the clog. Ted (the plumber) had it fixed in 15 minutes and they didn’t charge me!

Give MPP a call if you have a clogged drain. They will sort it out quickly and at a fair price!”
