Evergreen Lake receives the water drained from the Village of Hudson, the far north edge of the Town of Normal, and agricultural land in McLean & Woodford counties. It was built to be a supplemental drinking water source for the City of Bloomington. Six Mile Creek deposits its water into Evergreen Lake. The lake is immediately surrounded by Comlara Park, which has five different kinds of vegetation: All of these provide wonderful nature, recreation space, and buffers to improve water quality!
