The Town of Zwolle is no excep- tion in facing these exact challenges. Our approach has been to prioritize in- frastructure projects. We work hard to obtain federal, state, and third-party grants to help defer costs. This al- lows us to ensure that utility rates are as low as possi- ble while meeting the rules and regulations set forth by the Environmental Pro- tection Agency, Louisiana Department of Health, and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality. This is an ongoing process, and the Town is constantly working toward achieving compliance.
