The aim of the study is to analyse the seasonality of water losses from a collective water-supply system (CWSS) on the example of a provincial city located in south eastern Poland. The analysis was based on exploitation data obtained from the water-supply company for the period 2012–2016. For the analysis of seasonality a method based on average homogeneous sub-periods was used, with a relative seasonality index and the absolute levels of seasonal fluctuations being determined. Water losses from the analysed CWSS are also characterised using unit water-volume indicators within the water supply network. Over the research period, the volume of water produced and sold was found to decline, even as the number of inhabitants using the network increased. On the other hand, there is a growing demand for water used for own purposes by company, as related directly to their development. Water losses and values determined for the water-loss volume indicator both show a downward trend for the analysed CWSS. It is further observed that, in January, March and May, the loss of water is above average, while the volume of water lost in the other months is below average.
