This article, while referring to Barzok farms and Lavalun farm, elaborates on the coordinates and quality of the stone slab with the carved inscription, the text of the inscription, and the social and religious status of the founder of the aqueduct. In this thirteen-line inscription, the order to dig an aqueduct, called Qasemabad, is mentioned by Abolghasem Zaid Naraghi, one of the religious leaders of the region. This inscription includes the order of digging the aqueduct, the name and titles of the founder, good prayers to him, and the date of digging the aqueduct. The inscription of Lavalun aqueduct was written during the reign of Ghazan Khan in 695 AH.
