It was a center for the extraction and processing of uranium ore. The mine and processing plant have since closed.


The historic Battle of Zhovti Vody was fought on the site of the present-day city.

The area has been referred to by the term Zhovti Vody (literally 'yellow waters') since before the founding of the first village on the site in 1895.

Until 18 July 2020, Zhovti Vody was incorporated as a city of oblast significance and the center of Zhovti Vody Municipality. The municipality was abolished in July 2020 as part of the administrative reform of Ukraine, which reduced the number of raions of oblast. The area of Zhovti Vody Municipality was merged into the newly established Kamianske Raion.[3][4]
