Chattanooga is a city in and the county seat of Hamilton County and is the fourth-largest city Tennessee after Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville. The official nickname for Chattanooga is the “Scenic City” as it is situated in southeastern Tennessee on Chickamauga Lake and Nickajack Lake, which are both part of the Tennessee River and is surrounded by various mountains and ridges. Forbes magazine ranked Chattanooga 8th out of America’s 100 largest metro areas for the best “Bang For Your Buck.” Attractions like the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, various Civil War battlefield sites, the African American Museum, and the Appalachian Trail draw thousands of visitors to Chattanooga annually. Several colleges and universities are located in Chattanooga, including The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Chattanooga State Community College, and Tennessee Temple University.

Chattanooga Overview

After the Civil War ended, Chattanooga became a major railroad hub and industrial and manufacturing center. By the 1930s, the city was known as the “Dynamo of Dixie”, inspiring the 1941 Glenn Miller big-band swing song “Chattanooga Choo Choo”. In 1969, the federal government determined that Chattanooga’s air was the dirtiest in the nation because of the industrial pollutants. In the 1980s, Chattanooga faced significant socioeconomic challenges including job layoffs, a deteriorating city infrastructure, racial tensions and social divisions. However, in recent years, private and governmental resources have been invested in transforming the city’s tarnished image and to revitalize its downtown and riverfront areas. An early cornerstone of this project was the restoration of the historic Walnut Street Bridge, the oldest surviving bridge of its kind in the Southeastern United States. Today, Chattanooga’s economy includes a diversified and growing mix of manufacturing and service industries.

For years, use of asbestos-containing materials was common in industrial and manufacturing industries such as those found in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Workers who used or worked around asbestos products may be at risk to develop an asbestos-related disease.
