(D) No high level radioactive materials shall be buried or used, \
other than as provided by clause (ii) of subparagraph (A), at the proposed site until the advisory council reports to the Congress that construction and operation of such project and the transportation of waste materials to the project can be carried out in a manner which assures the safety of the project, the protection of public health, and the preservation of the quality of the environment of the region.
