Konka (Ukrainian: Конка, Кінські Води) is a left tributary of Dnieper River, flowing through the Zaporizhia Oblast. Among cities that located on the river are Polohy, Orikhiv and others.

The name is a local adaptation of the Crimean Tatar name of the river Yilki Su which means a water of wild horses. At the mouth of the river was located a residence of Beylerbey Mamai.[1] In 18th century it served as a border between the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Empire.[2]
