Water is one of the key factors for a sustainable development in Europe (OECD, 1989; Van der Ven and Kohsiek, 1991; United Nations, 1991; Fried 1992; Engelen, 1992). The complex of relations requires an integrated, holistic approach (IIASA, 1991). There are many different sources of supply with time-dependent quantity- and quality characteristics on the one hand and many demand and use sectors, nature conservation, agriculture, industry, public water supply and navigation, on the other hand.
