1. Multiple sensors embedded with LoRa Technology are placed on water pipes leading into homes or buildings

2. If sensors detect a leak, they send an alert to a LoRa-based gateway; meter readers can also send information to the gateway about irregular readings that may indicate a leak

3. Gateway sends information to the network where the data is analyzed by an application server

4. Application server generates a work order

5. Maintenance personnel receive work order via computer or mobile device, so that leak repairs can be scheduled and taken care of quickly
