Known for the Arlington Park Race Track and the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, Arlington Heights is a village in Cook County in Illinois that has a population of about 75,000. The most populous ‘village’ in the US, Arlington Heights had a population boom in the 1950s and 1960s that coincided with the spread of automobiles.
However, with an annual precipitation of 38.25 inches a year, and a climate that includes cold winters, hot summers, and thunderstorms being common during spring and summer, many residents usually find their basements flooded.
