There is much extended literature about classic technical hydraulic engineering and about the revitalization of bodies of water. This article deals with a third component, which has received little attention by the engineers. The author pleads for more aesthetic in hydraulic engineering, in particular in populated areas where many people use the open water bodies for recreation. It is shown that more aesthetic in hydrologic engineering often also leads to an increased ecological value. With hydraulic constructions in the canton of Lueerne, possible creative elements for the aesthetic and ecological revaluation of the course of creeks are discussed.
