The basic role of indicator systems is the structured provision of information for decisions from observation and readings. The development of Indicator systems for the water management is an interdisciplinary task which contains technical, organizational and mental aspects. Despite the impulses of the European water framework directive for indicator harmonization, a need for an efficient design of the waters management and for methods for the integration of data of different qualities can be expected. By the combination of system analytical methods with operative methods of the database management as well as suitable organizational measures, in the long run the requirements of the European water framework directive can be fulfilled in the constraints of the existing financial and personnel framework conditions.
