m-FC explanation
Answer
Wastewater river, bathing, and other nonpotable waters usually are tested for fecal coliforms, a special medium and an elevated incubation temperature inhibit growth of nonfecal coliforms. Fecal coliforms growing on the membrane form an acid that reacts with an aniline dye in the medium, producing a blue color.
