It is realised as a web portal where users can receive information on environmental water sector, combining data from the participating data warehouses and giving an opportunity to extract useful information by the available functions and tools. The WRMIS portal allows the access to information of data warehouses on the surface water quality in rivers and lakes, ground water, and point sources (emissions). A detailed description of the main components of the Water Resource Management Information System, is given, the advantages of Web Service-based solution are presented, and the direction of a further WRMIS development in the future is shown.
