This paper presents an alum dosage prediction in coagulation process by using Weka Data Mining Software. The data in this research had been collected from Dongmarkkaiy Water Treatment Plant (DWTP), Vientiane capital, Laos PDR from 1st January 2008 to 31st October 2016. The total number of collected data were 2,891 records. In this research, we compared the results from multilayer perceptron (MLP), M5Rules, M5P, and REPTree method by using the root mean square error (RMSE) and mean absolute error (MAE) value. Three input independent variables, i.e. turbidity, pH, and alkalinity were used. The dependent variable was alum added for the coagulation process. Our experimental results indicated that the MLP method yielded the highest precision method in order to predict the alum dosage.
