In 1918, Seattle City Light's second superintendent, J.D. Ross, had a vision to generate power and electricity by hydroelectric dams for the City of Seattle through the Skagit River Hydroelectric Project. Three dams along the Skagit River now generate about 20 percent of the electricity that powers Seattle. These historic, magnificent and powerful dams include the Gorge Dam, Diablo Dam and Ross Dam.
