Columbia College’s Long-standing Infrastructure

School is in session!  An exciting time for freshman and upper-class men alike. One of the things that may not be a topic that is frequently thought of, is the underground infrastructure and building history of some of the most attended colleges. Understandably so, but in many cases there is a rich historical background to consider.  Such is the case with Columbia College of Missouri.  Did you know that the initial infrastructure was a problem when the school was founded and the first classes were held in an unfinished mansion? The College began as a Christian Female College, receiving its charter from the Missouri Legislature on January 18, 1851, making it the first women’s college west of the Mississippi River to be chartered by state legislature. Columbia was also home to Stephens College, founded in 1833 and chartered in 1856. And by that time there were 150 students, including 85 boarders.  Now there are many changes, including renovations to buildings and enhancements to underground infrastructures, as well.  But, many of the late day buildings remain intact. The St. Clair has stood the test of time, as it is the main administration building. St. Clair was built in 1900 from pressed brick and Bedford stone in an Elizabethan style and still a mainstay of the college along with other sturdy infrastructures.

Rainy Season and Sewer Drainage Systems

Many of us are experiencing a rainy season now that summer is in full swing.  Along with the sunny delights and fanfare this time of year brings, there is also a need to think about the proper functioning of our drainage systems where we live.  It is important to know to what extent a drainage issue is prevalent.  In order to do this, a qualified fully licensed professional is needed for drain pipe cleaning. This will also maximize your awareness of the health of the pipelines in your home.  Here are a few suggestions when seeking the help of an expert: 1. Get referrals from people you know.  Word of mouth advertising speaks volumes on the overall satisfaction of previous jobs. 2. Check for a license to operate within your state. 3. Do a search for reviews and feedback online.  This will help you in finding your best options. 4. Ask for references.
