A model for Boeing Portland showing contaminant extraction wells and how they contribute to cleaning World War 2 era and later pollutants from the soil and area groundwater. The vertical scale is exaggerated to help the viewer understand the dynamics involved in the cleanup process. This is a wonderful example of how an engineering scale model can shine some light on complicated scientific data to clarify and promote an industry’s efforts to clean the environment.
