Lee Zimmerman is a Utilities Technician for the City of Tomball. He leads water production for Tomball, exemplifying excellence in all tasks associated with producing high-quality water for the city. During the Winter Storm of January 2024, Lee demonstrated the City of Tomball’s core values of Professionalism, Integrity, and Respect through thorough preparation and response.

Lee coordinated the winterization of the entire water production operations to minimize potential damage due to the impending intense cold weather. He also maintained constant vigilance over the water system, ensuring the smooth operation of Tomball. His meticulous attention to detail led to the early detection of decreased pressure on Wednesday, January 17.

In a true display of Tomball teamwork, crews from Public Works, Fire, and Police collaborated to investigate a potential large water leak. Within a short time, the leak was found and mitigated. Lee remained at the controls, promptly reporting that all pressures were returning to normal. Without Lee’s immense attention and expertise in the water system, a leak of that magnitude (a fire suppression tank leaking at 4,000 gallons per minute) would have posed a significant threat to the City of Tomball.

For his efforts and unwavering dedication to serving the public, please join us in congratulating Lee as the Public Safety Officer of the Month.
