Sewage Disposal Plant (former) – Freeport NY

Description

The construction of Freeport, New York’s old sewage Treatment Plant was aided by the provision of funds by federal Public Works Administration during the 1930s (PWA Docket No. NY 7138). The plant was located at the south end of Albany Avenue in Freeport.

A new sewage plant has been constructed a few miles west; however, at least some of the buildings of the old sewage plant still stand, and the site is now occupied by the Freeport Water Department.

Engineers and designers included Baldwin & Cornelius Co., Village Engineers of Freeport; and Clyde Potts of New York served as a consulting engineer.
