If I understand correctly, your water has 9000 ppm concentration of salt. Growing a garden with saline water can be challenging, but some plants can do well, especially beets, cotton, some grains, and some ornamentals. These articles will give you some advice:

This article assumes that you have non-saline water, but it includes links to lists of salt-tolerant plants:
