Module 7: Case Study 1Environmental Injustice in Homer, Louisiana1.Explain why various parties might have selected Homer as a place to build a uranium-enrichment facility. In your response, reviewthis from the angle of all stakeholders: city and local officials, residents, school system personnel, public services.The main objective of setting the uranium-enrichment facility in Homer is to improve the life style and economy of people of Homer according to Henry Payne (1997). By building this plant they believe it will create more job opportunities in this area. Payne also assumes that there will be no serious public health or environmental harm by the facility.

The residents may decide to support the plan for building the uranium-enrichment facility in Homer only if they feels that this plant will improve their daily life.
