• Subiect: The water mills with „alvan” on the inferior stream of Someş river. The water mill with „alvan” from Ciocmani Village The unique and original „alvan"-mill, descending from the tradition of building floating mills on the Someş River, on its lower course, in the limits of Sălaj County. The mill from Ciocmani Village completes the mill typology in The „ASTRA" Open Air Museum from Sibiu. The „alvan" is the answer to a problem of all floating-mills: How to protect the hydraulic wheel during the floods? The answer is: by constructing an intelligent mechanism on the river bank to help elevate the wheel from the river and, alsa, to keep it in the proper position for the best result possible during the grinding process. After the flood from 1970 this „alvan"-mill was the only mill rebuilt in the area. During the communist period the mill worked for the state and for the people from Ciocmani and from the nearby villages till it was built the first electric drawn mill in Var Village.
