Otter Tail Power - Benson County, ND
An abandoned 41.6kV line with 12.5kV underbuild. The lake had come up enough that this segment of line was retired from service and for a while, the 41.6kV line was actually repurposed as a continuation of the distribution circuit (by then too close to the water) to serve this and possibly other customers that were eventually lost to the lake (the house was torched as there was no longer a safe way to move it). The line was removed by 2010 (once the lake finally froze enough the company could get their equipment close enough).
