Award to Honor Dr. Divine’s Contributions in Technology to the Groundwater Industry

(WESTERVILLE, OH — October 8, 2019) Dr. Craig Divine, Vice President at Arcadis in Irvine, California, will receive the Technology Award from the National Ground Water Association (NGWA).

The award, which will be presented to Divine at NGWA’s Groundwater Week in Las Vegas, is presented to those who have made major contributions to the groundwater industry in the development of ideas, tools, and equipment.

Divine joined Arcadis in 1995 as a Project Hydrogeologist, after serving the company for over twenty years. He currently holds the position of Vice President, National Technical Support Expert and Account Leader. In this position Dr. Divine leads multidisciplinary teams in the execution of complex multimillion-dollar remediation projects.

At Arcadis Divine co-invented the Horizontal Reactive Media Treatment Well® (HRX Well). HRX Wells can be installed beneath active surface features and can be applied to address a wide range of contaminants, including chlorinated solvents, metals, and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Many view the HRX Well to be the new standard in managing contaminated groundwater.

An active member of the National Ground Water Association and author, Divine has published 13 articles in Groundwater and Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation.

Divine received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Wheaton College, his M.S. in Watershed Science from Colorado State University and his Ph.D. in Geochemistry from the Colorado School of Mines.

When not serving the groundwater industry, Divine volunteers and supports the Dignity Freedom Network and The PIER Institute, which aim to improve access to clean water around the world.
