The tag salt=* is used to indicate that a water in a water body (lake, lagoon) or water way (river) is salty.

It can be used in combination with natural=water, especially with tags water=lagoon, water=lake and landuse=salt_pond.

Note: There is a vague reference to salt=yes at the description of the key shop=tobacco as well.

Tagging

salt=yes or salt=no

Example:
