It should be C IMO. Here the issue is to avoid air/water getting polluted. So it's better to talk about them.

A is not parallel

In developing new facilities for the incineration of solid wastes, we must avoid the danger of shifting environmental problems

from landfills polluting the water (noun phrase) to polluting the air with incinerators (ing verb).

Hope it's clear

The Idiom tested is
From X_______ to Y__________
X = the pollution of water by landfills
Y = the pollution of air by incinerators

Both X and Y are parallel.

In developing new facilities for the incineration of solid wastes, we must avoid the danger of shifting environmental problems from landfills polluting the water to polluting the air with incinerators.

Idiom - From X to Y
(A) landfills polluting the water to polluting the air with incinerators - Parallelism - landfills polluting the water - Noun phrase, polluting the air with incinerators - Verb-ing phrase
(B) landfills polluting the water to the air being polluted with incinerators - Parallelism issue - landfills polluting the water is not parallel to the air being polluted with incinerators
(C) the pollution of water by landfills to the pollution of air by incinerators
(D) pollution of the water by landfills to incinerators that pollute the air - Parallelism issue
(E) water that is polluted by landfills to incinerators that pollute the air - Parallelism issue
