The community I picked was Barrington:

The average cost of a water bill is $65. The average transportation is $1,169 and house is on average $2501.

The water bill has gone up 28 percent. I think this may have happened because, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune Barrington needed funding to upgrade the sewer systems.
The water bill has outpaced the growth income. The water bill has outpaced it by 3 percent.

A low income household would have to work 6 hours a day to pay for the water bill.
