They identify the specifics of information systems from the point of view of their use in the Russian practice of sustainable water supply. The research involved analytical and logical methods, as well as theoretical developments in the field of management of urban organizations. As a result, the authors managed to identify the tools for the strategy of sustainable urban water utilization scheme.
