This report presents the results of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) interlaboratory validation study (the 'Study') of a membrane filtration procedure for the analysis of Escherichia coli (E. coli) in wastewater: EPA Method 1603 which uses modified membrane-thermo tolerant Escherichia coli agar medium (modified mTEC). The September 2002 version of the Method (EPA-821-R-02-023) was followed during the Study. The purposes of the Study were to characterize method performance (sensitivity, specificity, precision, and recovery) across multiple laboratories and disinfected wastewater matrices and to develop quantitative quality control (QC) acceptance criteria.
