Widespread occurrences of Klebsiella in water distribution networks have resulted in much discussion about the organism's effect on public health and about action that should be taken when Klebsiella is detected in public water supplies. Results obtained during development and testing of an improved medium for detecting Klebsiella showed that the medium (M-Kleb) has excellent differentiating characteristics and an average recovery rate of 94 percent for Klebsiella. This medium can also be used as a supplemental streak plate to demonstrate the presence of Klebsiella during membrane filter coliform verification or during the multiple-tube confirmation process.
