New Firm To Operate Freeport Stadium
An agreement has been reached by the Freeport
Village Board and the Campi Enterprises Inc.,
for the presentation of auto racing and other
spectator events at the Freeport Municipal Sta-dium.
The five-year agreement calls for capital im-provements
to be installed by Campi Enterprises
at a cost of about $125,000. This will include
enlargement of the track, installation of a
full size football field, paving of certain
walkways, and other improvements.
Mayor William H. White said the Village Board
had several proposals from interested promoters,
but the Campi proposal was the best offer from
the Village's standpoint. It provides for a
20% share of all admissions to go to the Vil-lage,
with a minimum guarantee of S'fOjOOO per
year. Income from food concessions and park-ing
would be additional. Campi Enterprises is
headed by the Camporetto Brothers, Don, Gino
and Anthony. The Camporetto brothers own the
Cremosa Cheese Corporation plant in the Free-port
Industrial Park. Don is a former auto
"We believe this will be a good arrangement for
the Village," Mayor White said, "because it
will enable us to improve the physical facili-ties
at the Stadium without cost to the Free-port
taxpayers, and enable us to retain the
Stadium as a Village property, on a profit mak-ing
basis, until such time in the future as
other uses might be found for the property."

An Environmental "First" For Freeport
Freeport, known for many "firsts" in municipal
services, is pioneering once more, this time in
the unglamorous but vital environmental field
of sewage collection.
Replacing a worn out and leaky sewer pipe is bad
news to the workmen responsible for such mainten-ance,
because it means tearing up the street, re-moving
the old pipe, installing new pipe, and re-paving
the street for the full length of the af-fected
When Freeport Public Works Superintendent Edwin
H. Prefer was faced with the prospect of replac-ing
565 feet of sewer line in the Freeport water-front
area" he saw it as an opportunity to try a
new procedure. If successful, the new technique
could save 90 percent of the cost of .such work,
accomplish the repairs in a fraction of the usual
time, and avoid the inconvenience and annoyance
of hundreds of feet of torn-up street.
The new method involved snaking a special plastic
pipe liner through the old pipe, utilizing small
street openings at both ends, without excavating
the street and removing the old pipe.
The polyethylene pipe is just slightly smaller
than the deteriorated concrete pipe, but its ex-tremely
smooth inner surface permits approximate-ly
the same flow as the concrete pipe with fewer
complications. The heat method of fusion used to
join the 38 feet lengths of polyethylene does not
deteriorate with age, thus preventing infiltra-tion
(outside water getting into the pipe) as well
as leakage of sewage from the pipe.
The polyethylene has a minimum life expectancy of
50 years and is not affected by the hydrogen sul-fide
corrosion which occurs most frequently in
Although this technique had never before been at-tempted
in this part of the country, Mayor William
H. White and the Village Board gave the go-ahead.
Superintendent Prefer had high praise for the Sew-er
Department for this operation and particularly
for Superintendent William Hetzel.
Among the visitors on hand to observe the inno-vative
procedure were: Joseph Hurley, Public
Health Engineer, Bureau of Water Pollution Control,
Nassau County Health Department; James Gillen,
Deputy Commissioner and John Campbell, Nassau
County Public Works Department; Frank Flood, Di-rector
of Sewer Service and James Lavery, Assist-ant
Director Sewer Maintenance, Nassau County;
Edward Totten, Superintendent of Construction,
Nassau County Department of Public Works; Albert
Machlin, Regional Director, and Thomas May, New
York State Department of Environmental Conserva-tion;
E. Matsonay, Suffolk County Superintendent
of Public Works; W.D. Bush, Chief Call Systems,
Philadelphia Water Department; Vincent L. Hughes,
P.E., Chief Consultant of Philadelphia Department
of Public Works; representatives of New York City

Works; George James of R. P. Brown Associates,

Public Works, Garden City, New York.
Freeport Sewer Department crew begins process
of putting one pipe inside another, in new re-pair
technique that avoids the cost and mess
of excavating the street along the length of
the pipe to be replaced, in this case 565 feet.

With ordinary meth-ods
the street where they are

torn up to remove the old pipe.
These sidewalk superintendents are not just here
for idle curiosity. They are Public Works Su-perintendents
and other officials from other
areas of New York State, New Jersey and Connect-icut,
in Freeport to observe the new technique.
Neatness counts, as plastic pipe liner is pull-ed
through the old pipe, utilizing two small
street openings instead of tearing up entire
street length of 565 feet to remove worn out
