ALCOA TO CLOSE ONE LINE AT WASHINGTON SMELTER

 PITTSBURGH, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcoa (NYSE: AA) will close one of five aluminum smelting lines at its plant in Wenatchee, Wash.
 The closing of the line, which has capacity to produce 42,000 metric tons of primary aluminum a year, follows an announcement by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) that it will curtail 25 percent of the power supplied to the Alcoa plant and other industrial customers beginning Jan. 15. The curtailment is the result of low water levels in BPA's hydroelectric dams.
 Alcoa will begin the process of closing the line immediately. Some 75 employees could be laid off as a result of the action.
