Farmers Question Proposed Dakotas Power Line

May 21, 2014, 10:21 AM

ABERDEEN, SD -

Some farmers are questioning a proposed 170-mile electrical transmission line proposed from southeastern North Dakota to northeastern South Dakota.

People who spoke at a Tuesday night hearing in Aberdeen held by South Dakota's Public Utilities Commission questioned easement payments, possible land devaluation and the possibility of the power line interfering with GPS equipment on farm machinery.

The proposed line is a joint venture of Montana-Dakota Utilities and Otter Tail Power. It would stretch from a Big Stone power plant substation near Big Stone City, South Dakota, to a substation near Ellendale, North Dakota. It would cost up to $370 million.

The line needs regulatory approval in both states, though all but about 9 miles would be in South Dakota.
