I chose Evanston. The average water bill is $39 which is cheaper than the transportation and housing costs. The average transportation cost is $898 and housing cost is $2,290. The average water bill has increased by 4%. I think this has increased because of the growing population of Evanston leading to an increase in water use and limiting the water supply. The water bill did not outpace the growth in income. A low-income household needs to work 11.6 hours to pay their water bill.
