13 is determined by the Board that the long term impacts to public
14 health and the environment are such that land burial should not
15 be allowed and where an economically reasonable, technically
16 feasible and environmentally sound alternative is available
17 for processing, recycling, fixation or neutralization of such
18 wastes. The agency shall participate in all such proceedings.
19 No such prohibition may become effective unless a specific
20 alternative technology meeting the criteria of this subsection
21 is identified by the Board. Nothing in this subsection shall
22 prohibit the land burial of any hazardous waste which is the
23 subject of review under this subsection until such time as a
24 final prohibition order is issued by the Board.
