Novapoint Water & Sewer

Novapoint Water and Sewer is a CAD-based program for constructing pipelines and manholes for all types of water and sewer projects. The program is easy to use and includes all necessary functions for configuration, construction, calculations, drawings, reports and also includes a cross-section viewer. With the configuration function, the user is able to configure all of the details of a Water and Sewer project. For instance type of pipes used, manholes or other connections, materials, dimensions of pipes and manholes, rules for plan and profile drawings with line type, color and line thickness. In addition, the user configures cross sections of the trench with types of pipes and where the pipe is placed in the trench. All construction is done simultaneously in plan and profile.

The Water & Sewer pages are divided into four main categories:
