Oak Ridge, National Laboratory

Amerikansk by i delstaten Tennessee, hvor Manhattan projektets US Army Corps of Engineers. Manhattan District; Oak Ridge, etablerede tre forskellige anlæg til produktion af beriget uran, dengang kaldet Clinton Engineer Works, i 1943. Nu del af USAs aktuelle atomvåbenindustrielle kompleks under Det amerikanske energiministerium.
Frem til og med 1964 blev al beriget uran i USA anvendt til kernevåben eller af den amerikanske flåde.
Området, der ifølge Nuclear Wastelands s. 226 er stærkt forurenet er underlagt the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan.

"Conservative estimates indicated that 35,000 pounds of uranium were released into the air from all sources. 4,300 pounds of uranium a month was unaccounted for or released to the environment. ETTP operates an incinerator which handles radioactive, hazardous and uranium-contaminated PCB wastes. ETTP generated transuranic elements (isotopes with atomic numbers greater than uranium) such as neptunium-237 and plutonium-239; fission products such as techneitum-99; PCBs; toxic metals; and volatile organic compunds such as trichloroethene (TCE) and present risk to the public".
