Tom Calabrese is the founder and principal investigator of EnviroLogic Resources. Tom has been a technical leader in the environmental and water resources industries for 25 years.

Tom started his professional career in the gold exploration industry. This work solidified the education he received from Occidental College in geologic principles, earth chemistry, and mapping. Tom worked for a ground-water consulting firm doing geophysical surveys, ground-water exploration, and ground-water flow modeling, where he gained important experience in earth structure and solving ground-water flow problems. He then moved on to conduct hazardous waste investigations and remediation. He understands the hydrologic cycle, from precipitation to surface and ground-water flow, human and natural impacts, resulting water chemistry, and permitting.

Of particular interest to Tom is the planning and implementation of developments that mimic the natural hydrologic system or create net benefits to the environment. Local watershed restoration projects, postings on various City of Portland citizen advisory committees, and years of work on the Tryon Creek Watershed Council have provided opportunities to make a direct and positive impact on water quality in his neighborhood.
