The article analyzes current challenges of the water supply system in St. Petersburg and innovative approaches to solving problems, which have arisen in the modern development conditions. Object of the research is the water supply system of the large city. Water supply system is a complex of engineering constructions, which contains water treatment plants and water pipelines to provide consumers with high quality services of water supply. The city’s water supply system requires modernization for the purpose of customers’ provision with quality water supply services - namely portable water for the population and industries. It is proposed to perform modernization with the closed-cycle resource technology implementation in the sphere of water supply. Economic research and forecasting methods are used in this work. Environmental, social and economic effects will simultaneously be achieved in the innovative development conditions as the proposed technology implementation outcome.
