The firm said Monday that Daigger’s retirement is effective Dec. 19.
“We stand by Glen in celebration of his 35 years of service to CH2M HILL and our industry, as he settles into retirement and transitions to a new consulting role,” said Greg McIntyre, CH2M Hill president for the global water market.

He is currently a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
