Water shortages are gradually accelerating because higher standards of living are required and water resources are more heavily utilised. Therefore, effective water treatment is necessary in order to retain the required quality and amount of water. General treatment includes coagulation, flocculation, filtering and disinfection. Coagulation, flocculation and disinfection are major components of water treatment processes. In this paper, a new automatic decision algorithm is proposed for coagulation. The proposed method shows how to determine the coagulant type and amount using data mining techniques.
