This is a site model for Boeing Portland that shows how contaminant extraction wells clean pollutants from the soil and area groundwater from the World War II era and later. 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.
