Arkavathy River (Kannada ಆರ್ಕಾವತಿ ), or Arkavathi River is a large mountain river in Karnatakamarker, India, originating at Nandi Hillsmarker of Chikkaballapur districtmarker. It is a tributary of the Kaveri River, which it joins at Kanakapuramarker, called Sangama in Kannada, after flowing through Kolar District and Bangalore Rural district. The river drains into the Chikkarayappanahalli Lake near Kanivenarayanapura.

The river is used by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board to provide 135 million liters of drinking water per day to the city of Bangaloremarker, or about 20% of all the city's water. As it is filtered in the nearby mountain aquifer, the water is fresh and crystal clear. The water is taken from two reservoirs built on the river, the Hesaraghattamarker (or Hesseraggatta), which was built in 1894, and the Tippagondanahalli Reservoirmarker (or T G Halli), which was built in 1933.
