Lee Odell, PE

Principal Engineer

Lee’s water treatment calling began when he worked as a treatment plant operator, which has since flourished into a decades-long career in engineering. In fact, Lee has become a nationally recognized authority in ground and surface water treatment. It goes without saying that Lee is Murraysmith’s go-to expert for projects dealing with drinking water quality, planning, and treatment.


What Lee enjoys most about his job is working closely with his team and clients to solve difficult problems—he always prefers simple designs over complex ones. When he is not working to find clever engineering solutions, Lee likes to unwind by doing yardwork, reading, and traveling.
