In the title crystal structure, C9H14O3·H2O, the water mol-ecule accepts a hydrogen bond from the carboxyl group [O⋯O = 2.6004 (13) Å and O - H⋯O = 163°], while donating hydrogen bonds to the ketone [O⋯O = 2.8193 (14) Å and O - H⋯O = 178 (2)°] and the acid carbonyl groups [O⋯O = 2.8010 (14) Å and O - H⋯O = 174 (2)°]. This creates a network of hydrogen bonds confined within a continuous flat ribbon two mol-ecules in width and extending in the  direction.
