This dataset contains data tables of laboratory quality-control data associated with environmental samples analyzed for microbiological constituents at the Ohio Water Microbiology Laboratory of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) during federal fiscal years 2012-2017 (October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2017). The environmental samples were collected across the United States by the USGS National Water Quality Assessment Project and other projects in Water Science Centers. The microbiological constituents include total coliforms, Escherichia coli (E. coli), enterococci, coliphage (F-specific and somatic), aerobic endospores, and actinomycetes. These quality-control data can be used to assess the quality of microbiological data for the associated environmental samples.
