- the works performed on the Ensemble “Vasile Cotovu” – historical monument (Old School and Pedagog House) continued: levelling off the walls on the inside and outside, excavations for the foundations of both buildings, fittings for consolidations, the shuttering kits were assembled and the entries were created.

Other problems identified concern the excavations performed on the site: for the electric power station and for the water basin there is rock. It requires additional digging (about 3 meters for the electric power plant and 5-6 meters for the water basin).
