A disposal site that is temporarily closed shall not receive waste and shall remain closed while remedial action is taken. Before authorizing the reopening of a temporarily closed disposal site, the department shall seek the advice of the local monitoring committee of the host site community and the department of natural resources, and shall provide a documented explanation of its reasons for authorizing the reopening.
