    Abstract

    The importance of water for life on earth can hardly be underestimated. Too much water at the same place is a problem, often a disaster. the same goes for too little water. Water management is one of the oldest tasks to be taken on by government. the management of water is not only a matter of quantity: water pollution is a great threat to ecological systems as well as a threat to many applications, such as its use by humans as drinking water.
