The average water bill is $68. It is very little compared to the average transportation and housing costs. It has increased by 76% since 2008. I think this is because of infrastructure replacement costs. We are already a well-developed city and have got our water from Lake Michigan, but I'm not sure about how up-to-date our system is. The water bill has outpaced the growth in income by 49%. A low-income household needs to work 5.3 hours to pay their water bill.
