Water and sewer rates for Arlington Heights residents will be going up each year over the next five years — including a 19 percent jump in 2016 — to pay for what officials said are critical infrastructure needs.

A rate plan approved by the village board Monday calls for hikes of 5 percent, 19 percent, 5 percent, 5 percent and 5 percent over the next five years. The cost for water and sewer will go from today’s $5.56 per 1,000 gallons to $8.04 per 1,000 gallons in 2019, according to village documents. That would take the average bimonthly bill from $140.11 to $193.01.
