Administratively, it is incorporated within Zhovti Vody municipality as a town of oblast significance, the status equivalent to that of a raion (district).

It is a center for the extraction and processing of uranium ore.

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.
