The relevance of the work lies in a deep understanding of the importance of industrial groundwater in order to use it in the development of a number of sectors of the national economy. This is especially important for our region, as a number of deposits containing unique water composition have already been discovered here. This allows us to optimistically assess the prospects for their development and use, both at the regional and state level. The paper provides a detailed description of the state of industrial iodine - containing groundwater in the Astrakhan region on the example of the Astrakhan and Leonidovsky fields. The empirical significance of using industrial water to meet the needs of a number of industries, not only in the Astrakhan region, but also in Russia, is objectively revealed. Conclusions: Our country is the largest world power with a unique natural resource potential of industrial groundwater and can provide industrial production of iodine, bromine, lithium, caesium, boron and strontium compounds, sodium, calcium and magnesium salts on a large scale. Therefore, a significant contribution to the development of the national economy belongs to the Astrakhan region, since a number of deposits of industrial groundwater have already been discovered here.
