On Sunday evening, Oct. 10, Lake Region Electric Cooperative’s (LREC) Erhard substation experienced an outage for approximately 15 minutes. 

In addition, both Fergus Falls substations were without power for a little over an hour. 

LREC worked with Otter Tail Power (OTP) and Great River Energy to assist with line patrol until OTP could restore power completely. 

Otter Tail Power owns the transmission lines that affected these outages.
