I completely agree with you on above water/ground systems and cathodic 
protection, what caught my attention from these guys was that they 
completely agree with us, they say it will not work and go into how their 
technology is different (capacitive coupling) Here is the link

The other thing I saw was a client reference page with references from 
brine harvesting trucks on "The Great Salt Lake".

My only experience is with the sacrificial anodes on my boat, but I was 
looking at this for my cars that suffer through Chicago winters and the 
salt we dump in mass quantities on our roads here. And who better to ask 
about salt than you guys, I have been lurking for a while and it feels good 
to get into the mix finally.

I have a five year plan to be on the salt with you guys, should be there 
next year just to spectate and absorb all I can(hopefully more info than sun).
