Tom is a veteran of the war in Vietnam and a registered professional hydrologist with over 42 years of experience consulting and working on water resource issues and projects.  He has handed off management of the business to his son Luke Osborne and daughter-in-law Amanda Osborne; both are veterans and both are engineers.

HydroSolutions has grown to a sustainable level in the last 20 years, and continues to seek new opportunities to capture market share.  In addition to private sector and local government customers, the company has been successful in winning close to $2 million in federal contracts from various agencies.  HydroSolutions employs 12 professionals at very competitive salaries and provides retirement and healthcare benefits to its employees. 

The company has offices in Helena and Billings and works throughout the Western United States serving industry, Federal, State and local governmental agencies.  Quality, integrity, safety and responsiveness are the core of the company’s values.
