In the title compound, [Sr2(C8H6O 8)(H2O)4)]n, the SrII ion is coordinated by six O atoms of four symmetry-related ligands and two water molecules in a distorted bicapped trigonalprismatic environment. The butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylate ligands lie on inversion centers and bridge SrII ions, forming a three-dimensional network. Within the three-dimensional structure, there are O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the water molecules and carboxylate O atoms.
