The Colville Tribes' business arm will open its fifth fuel location in special ceremonies this Friday


Opening is a new $3.4 million convenience store at Manson, Washington, near the tribes’ Mill Bay Casino. The location is at 455 Wapato Lake Road.

Ceremonies begin at 10 a.m., and the facility has been named Colville Fuels Deep Water. The public is invited to attend the ribbon cutting and go through the new facility.

“Deep Water has been open since Feb. 22, and is the flagship of Colville Fuels’ locations,” said Nathan Moulton, who handles media information.

There might be a sixth facility in the near future, Moulton said.

There is a public hearing scheduled at 10 a..m. Thursday, April 14, at the City of Moses Lake Auditorium (Civic Center) for a planned $5 – 7 million convenience-fuel operation on a 9.2 acre piece of property at SR-171 and I-90. This one would be called Moses Lake Travel Plaza.

A public notice published in the Columbia Basin Herald last week refers to that development as a truck stop that would encompass nearly 12,000 square feet and offer 20 fuel pumps.

The tribes opened a gas complex near its new Omak 12 Tribes Casino called Colville Fuels Plaza at a cost of $3.8 million.

Earlier the tribes opened Colville Fuels Noisy Waters in Kettle Falls with a $4.1 million investment.

The tribes also have store-gas operations at the agency near Nespelem and at Keller.

Moulton said that operations are doing well above expectations.

The company reported a $700,000 increase in net income last year, the Tribal Tribune reported in January.

Colville Fuels is a subsidiary of Colville Federal Tribal Corp.
