Another vote for D.

at a cost raising water bills should be rephrased - at a cost that will raise water bills so high that... which D, a possessive pronoun, has done.

Agree with D.

BTW , why is "high enough so that" not effective.

D for me.

gmat2me2, choice B uses "at a cost raising" and therefore is wrong. If the choice were worded - "at a cost that will raise water bills", then perhaps, it would make more sense. Also if you notice, the sentence uses past-tense, and the choice uses a present continuous tense.

D

A, B and C - Wrong usage of the verb
E - wordy
