A load of rocks are placed during the construction of a temporary emergency barrier to block salt water intrusion into the West False River in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta near Oakdale, Calif., Friday, May 29, 2015.  About 150,000 tons of been used in the construction of the nearly 750-foot-wide barrier, built between Jersey and Bradford Islands by the California Department of Water Resources.  The project, which is nearing completion nearly two weeks ahead of schedule, will be removed in mid-November.  As less fresh water flows down the rivers, due to California's historic drought, salt salt water moves farther up the delta which effects the water supply to communities and irrigation water for farmers.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
