Concentrtated urine has a strong odor to it. Is she getting adequate fluids every day? Also, is she spayed? Could the odor be from drainage elsewhere? I also wonder about anal glands.

If she's on meds that might explain it, but yes, give her free access to water. If she finishes one bowl, pour more in, so that she walks away with water still in the bowl (it's not clear if you're doing that already)

Not seeing what size bowls you're using it's tough to judge the quantity of water she's already getting.

You should never limit water intake. Dogs should always have free access to water.

she may be expressing her anal glands while she pees. Hopefully this is happening outside?

When my males pee started to stink horrible we took him in. We found he has a UTI... According to the doctor one of the first signs of a UTI is smelly and darker pee.

due to her being incontinent i cant give her all the water she wants i wake up in the morning and she basicly is lying ina pool of her own urine if she has free access to water all the time. her bowl for her water is quite large i have the same for my older boy snoop and i fill it right up to the top when she gets it with her meals.when i take her out she will do 1 large pee and then is squatting every 5 mins and only a few dribbles come out, and she is still dribbling in the house without knowing it. she has been on proplain for 3 weeks an the vets say that it takes a month to kick in. Because she hasnt used the muscle in her back end before in her life it may take an extra couple of weeks but the vet said that he is 80% sure she will regain full control of the muscle.
