Water quality is a multi-source, multi-purpose problem that needs exploiting observations, often taken by a number of heterogeneous bodies. This problem has been tackled within the Italian Long Term Ecological research network (LTER-Italy) in an experiment aimed at testing how ecological observations of mountain lakes water can be shared by OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) standard services of the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) initiative. A friendly and easy implementation of these services is

It has been used in the experiment to create SOS services, upload observations and create SensorML metadata of the involved sensors. This contribution describes the experiment and presents its results.
