The aims of study to analyze aspects that must be considered in the selection of coagulation and flocculation unit in water treatment plant based on multi-criteria analysis methods. Drinking water treatment plant consists of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection units. There are several types of coagulation and flocculation units based on their operational methods, therefore, an appropriate type of unit is needed in selecting process. There are several aspects considered in the selection of processing units, specifically technical, economic and environmental aspects. The method that will be carried out in determining the processing units is a scoring method by giving a percentage to each aspect and the index value in the alternative units. Mechanical and hydraulic type of unit will be the comparison to determine the right coagulation and flocculation units that will be used in the next drinking water treatment plant. Based on the scoring results, the type of coagulation is the hydraulic jump unit has a score of 4.85 and the flocculation unit selected score 4.75 is hydraulic flocculation. The selected unit that will be used in the next plant is coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration
