The purpose of this research is to show that the water supply of territories is the basic factor for the growth of modern cities. Analytical methods of scientific research were used in this study. Analysis of modern water supply was carried out to identify the problems in this area. Nowadays, there have been negative trends in water supply, affecting the growth of cities, which were indicated by the authors as the modern conditions for the sustainable urban development. The problems of modern water supply are: limited access of the population to guarantee sources of water supply, an increased level of environmental pollution, and an inadequate financing in the field of water supply, whose purpose is to provide qualitative water supply services for the consumers. These specific features in a field of water supply complicate the implementation of sustainable urban development concept. Providing sustainable development is impossible without integrated consideration of socio-ecological-economic and natural factors. The result of the study consists in the necessity of taking into account the potential of city development in terms of water availability per person during the modeling sustainable urban development.
