Made a good faith effort to purchase an alternative on the list adopted by the Department pursuant to Section 1302 of this Chapter; or has demonstrated that the alternative is not economically viable for the proposed use or is not practical in limited circumstances; and
Developed a best management practice, including a plan for minimizing leaching or contact with human skin, if the exemption is granted.
