Network design is a subject which is of essential importance for hydrology. The system of hydrological gauging stations provides the information, necessary for all other hydrological activities. In early times hydrological measurements were carried out already. The most famous example is the Roda Gauge at the river Nile in Egypt, from which observations are known since 641 (Hurst et a1.,1965). In the 17th century water stage measurements were carried out in Amsterdam for the ocean going vessels. At the river Rhine water stages have been observed since 1770, Rainfall measurements also started in many European countries in the 17th and 18th centuries.
