Should a timing belt and water pump replacement cost $1600 in DC area? on 2001 Saturn LW300

My timing belt started going bad, and I've been told that the water pump should be replaced at the same time. But replacing those two items are estimated to cost $1600. I know labor rates are high around here, but doesn't that sound excessive?
