This paper illustrates the requirements, problems and XML-based architectural proposals relating to a specialized Water Semantic Web System for the diffusion and the evolution of the awareness of water resources. The real and true themes connected to the awareness of water resources are presented, including those related to the artistic and social aspects destined to integrate the purely technological and organizational ones already present in the current information offer of other web systems specialized on water. We, therefore, present the technological instruments considered most adequate for the creation of the Water Semantic Web System. In conclusion a possible XML-based architecture for the system is presented and some of the initial results obtained are illustrated.
