Summary
The document specifies the allocation of water from rDzing chu canal (i.e. water from the reservoir, which involves 15 estates) and the Yur chu canal (4 estates) (bag til/ bag stol—meaning not clear). This seems to be an inhabitual record (since water allocations are not usually committed to writing) of the quantity of water used in a single round of irrigation.
