Anthropogenic activities, including the release of wastewater and sewage from hospitals, have contributed to the contamination of aquatic environments, raising a concern to public health. In this study, we present the first draft genome sequence of a Klebsiella pneumoniae strain (Kp171, TIET-4200) belonging to the high-risk hospital-associated clonal lineage ST340/CC258, which was recovered from a water sample collected in an urban river in Brazil.
