Frequent occurrence of Klebsiella in coliform colonization problems found in water supply distribution has prompted the development of a new medium (m-Kleb agar) for specific detection. The medium has excellent differential characteristics, and an average 94% Klebsiella recovery rate when used in the membrane filter procedure. This media may also be used as a streak plate to verify Klebsiella occurrence in the MF verification procedure or as a supplementary test in the multiple tube confirmation process. A proposed action plan with two levels of response to coliform occurrences in public water supplies is discussed.
