This research aims to figure out how the Institutional Coordination of Brantas Watershed Management is done. By using descriptive analysis method, the research shows that the Institutional   Coordination   of   Brantas  Watershed   Management   consists   of   operator, developer, regulator, and user. Those four institutional elements are coordinated together in Tim Koordinasi Pengelolaan Sumber Daya Air (TKPSDA) Brantas (The Coordination Team of the Management of Brantas Water Resource). TKPSDA Brantas has an authority in discussing proposed water allocation plans from each water resource in the area of Brantas River and deciding those allocation plans named Pola Operasi Waduk and Alokasi Air/ POWAA (The Pattern of Dam Operation and Water Allocation). Since POWAA is a guideline of water arrangement for dam operation and water allocation on each withdrawal gate in Brantas River in order to fulfill any necessities agreed by water users and water suppliers such as irrigation, industry, raw material of mineral water, and power generator, POWAA becomes the important output of the coordination in order to achieve Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM).
