Category:Cushman Dam No. 1
English: Cushman Dam No. 1 is a hydroelectric dam on the North Fork of the Skokomish River in Mason County forming Lake Cushman. It was built by Tacoma City Light (now Tacoma Power) in 1924-1926. Tacoma's demand for electricity grew rapidly after World War I. Tacoma City Light’s Nisqually River Hydroelectric Project, built in 1912, could not meet the demand and the utility decided to build a new hydroelectric project on the North Fork Skokomish River. The dam and powerhouse first began to delivery electricity on February 12, 1926.
