In this paper we present a part of our investigation of the photodouble ionization (PDI) of gaseous water. Synchrotron radiation from ELETTRA storage ring was used to ionize the water molecule, and the two emitted electrons were collected in coincidence after angle and energy selection. We have compared the measured dication states with those known from literature and showed the angular distributions of the two photoelectrons measured for the first time, for different excess energies and under different energy sharing conditions. A detailed comparison with theoretical calculations is given to help understand some details of the PDI mechanism.
