Was there a rate of increase in salt content provided in the stimulus?

I think I may have missed the rate at which there has been an increase in salt content per 20 years.

The rate is not provided in the stimulus, but the argument implies that in a place where the traffic pattern is similar to the one in Albritten 20 years ago the salt content is only 10 mg/ liter, hence the salt content must have increased from 10 mg to 100 mg over 20 years. The fact that the true rate of salt increase is a lot lower - only 90 to 100 mg over 20 years suggests that the concerns regarding groundwater becoming too salty are unfounded.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
