EPA Publishes Updated List of Approved Crypto Labs

To assure that water systems required to conduct Cryptosporidium monitoring under the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) have access to the laboratory capacity across the country, EPA maintains a listing of approved laboratories.  This listing has recently been updated and now includes laboratories that have passed EPA’s Laboratory Quality Assurance Evaluation Program for Analysis of Cryptosporidium under the Safe Drinking Water Act, and have been granted “Approved” status.  The list includes 52 approved or provisionally approved labs. The new list can be obtained on the EPA website HERE.
