The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Cu(C7H3NO4)(H2O)3], comprises a distorted tetragonally elongated octa­hedral copper(II) centre coordinated equatorially by a tridentate 2,6-pyridine­di­carboxyl­ate anion [Cu-N 1.9093 (14), and Cu-O 2.0368 (11) and 2.0397 (11) Å] and a strongly bound water mol­ecule [Cu-O 1.9047 (12) Å] and axially by two weakly bound water mol­ecules [Cu-O 2.3631 (12) and 2.4739 (12) Å]. The extended structure is based on a layered arrangement in which sheets of stacked molecular units are alternately linked by hydrogen-bonding and [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions.
