The transfer of ownership of the U.S. Forest Service’s SR504 power line to Cowlitz PUD is expected to open the Mount Saint Helens Highway corridor to economic development. The power line was owned by the Forest Service since the eruption in 1980, and they were not able to provide public power to other entities. With the completion of the transfer to Cowlitz PUD, power will be available to all, a necessary step for the economic revitalization of the area.
