    The interoperability problems of distributed databases are important in the developing of the operatively working web services aimed for all sectors of public administration. The following web services are designed for solving tasks in water resource management and contamination evaluation sector with a due attention to the international environment protection context. The paper is devoted to problems of developing the component-based architecture of the integrated decision-support system that afford ground for the monitoring and intellectual analysis of water management. Such investigations are made according to the requirements of European Union (EU) Water Framework Directive, Sustainable development Directives and EIONET ReportNet infrastructure. The main components of decision-support system are analyzed by using different knowledge modelling and web service development techniques. The structure of water resource management information system (WRMIS) becomes the core of the decision-support system in which web services are implemented. The main components for evaluation of processes of contamination and water monitoring are represented by data warehouse structures. The solutions to satisfy the interoperability requirements are demonstrated by architectural design decisions of the system, integrating the distributed data warehouses and geographical information system means. The web services are based on common portal technology. The organizational and political arrangements require deeper and stronger participation activities by all member states of EU in reporting, understanding the importance of sustainable development problems and risk evaluation possibilities.
