"Remaining Existing & Entitled Capacity Under Permit" is the total capacity for which a facility has undergone environmental review and permitting; use of this capacity may require construction of additional cells.

"Proposed Capacity Not Under Permit" is capacity which has been proposed to NYSDEC in an application, but for which approvals have not been completed.
