mineralizatsiya morskoy vody
obschee soderzhaniye rastrorennykh tverdykh veschestv

In Russian, the technical term “mineralizatsiya” is used for “salinity”, when the context is dealing with water purity. The term for “water salinity” is “mineralizatsiya morskoy vody”. In the examples below, it is measured in grams per liter; however, one can also decide to measure it as a percentage, like it is done in your example.

... и солеными озерами выбрана на том основании, что при минерализации морской воды 24,7 г/л температура замерзания и максимальной плотности равны между ...

С увеличением минерализации морской воды до 40 г/л в Арале исчезли высшие формы жизни.
... результатом этих мер явится повышение уровня воды в озере, уменьшение ее минерализации и увеличение содержания растворенного в воде кислорода.

The exact Russian term for TDS (Total Dissolved Substances) is “obschee soderzhaniye rastrorennykh tverdykh veschestv” (OSRTV) (see the example below, which is similar to your context):

... процесс способен удалять из воды 95 99 общего содержания растворенных твердых веществ осртв и 99 всех бактерий и давать чистую безопасную воду

Likewise, TDS can be expressed in grams per liter, or in per cent. In your documents, you can write "% ot obschego", which is normally the way to avoid writing the full term.
