Moses Lake has quickly transformed into a vast region where transportation, agriculture, and recreation converge, and it is one of the most diverse places in the US.
In the 1940s, farmers had access to water from the Columbia River and its tributaries and began pumping irrigation water to allow the construction of a dam on the site of what is now the city of Moses Lake. Meanwhile, farmers developed water - they irrigated lakes on the Columbia River, began irrigating vast areas, and developed new irrigation methods to irrigate the lake itself. In the 1950s and 1960s, irrigation water began to be pumped into the river, irrigating the entire area from where it is located to the coast and developing an irrigation channel. In the meantime, they developed water - irrigation lakes and irrigated the water in and around the lake itself, and began to plant extensive irrigation - arable land.
"If you don't make $50,000 a year in Moses Lake, you're a punk," said one farmer, "and if you don't make $10,500 or $20,000 a year in the lake year, you're a punk.
He grew up in Tacoma, attended the University of Puget Sound and served in the US House of Representatives and the State Senate before returning to Moses Lake, where he built houses and farmed his family's land until his death in the 1970s. The city was courageous enough to be incorporated in September 1938 and held its first public session on the first Sunday of October of that year. Just twenty years after incorporating the park, George decided that it needed only one bowling alley, so the Russell family cut the ribbon at Lake Bowl in 1957. MosesLake Iron and Metal was founded in the 1950s and sold to Norman Estoos in 1979, which is now owned by Wayne and Karen Rimple.
Then in 1948, Moses Lake landed the biggest windfall in its history: the facility was brought back and reopened as the headquarters of the 325th Weather Fighter Wing. The institute moved its base to Spokane, but the old air base is now owned by the Port of Mosesville and is home to the U.S. Air Force's Pacific Air National Guard Base. It is also the site of its museum and art center, which houses archaeological tribal artifacts from the Great Lakes, Yakima Valley and other parts of Washington State.
The Origins of the Columbia River Basin, "a new travel guide published in 1997, explored by Marge and Ted Mueller. It covers the history of Moses Lake, its water source history and its role in the formation and development of its basalt, which flows into the Pacific and Great Lakes, as well as Lake Washington.
Chief Moses was the leader of the Sinkius tribe from 1859 to 1899 and was forced to negotiate with white settlers who began to colonize the area in the 1880s. Under government pressure, he swapped land in the Columbia Basin for a reserve stretching from Lake Chelan north to the Canadian-American border. Chief Moses swapped the Columbia Basin for the reserve, which stretched north of Lake Chelan to the borders of Canada and the United States. Moses Lake Army Air Base was mothballed, but not completely abandoned.
With a population of more than 16,000, Moses Lake was the center of an important agricultural region and Big Bend Community College provided educational opportunities. The old airbase is now owned by the Port of Moses and houses a number of small businesses, including a grocery store, a gas station and a restaurant.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, one of the most important aspects of Moses Lake's water quality is its ability to recover from a reduction in phosphorus input.
Before Moses Lake was dammed in the early 20th century and then included in the Columbia Basin Project, it was a small, salty shallow lake, said Dr. John D. Smith, a professor of geology and geophysics at the University of Washington. In the 1940s, when the truth about the gigantic lake of Missoula was discovered, it was controversial how the deep stump was dug up and the location of the exposed palisades and other features determined by Moses Coulee. Today, it is agreed that the glacial flood of Lake Missoua 10-15 thousand years ago cut the Moses Couplee and changed the country on its way to the Pacific. Traveling, "in which the floods broke through a huge glacial dam in Idaho and Montana.
