Wheaton's average monthly water bill is $58. It's very little compared to housing costs($2,282) and transportation($1,084). The water bill has increased by 116% since 2008 and I think it's because of the limited water supply. The water bill has outpaced the growth in income by 90%. A low-income household would need to work 5 hours to be able to pay for their water bill.
