Steamboat Resort is visible on the north side of Steamboat Slough, background, on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 in Courtland, Calif. The long-time resort and marina could be affected by a proposal to build a rock barrier across the slough. State officials are planning to temporarily dam three channels in the Delta to prevent the estuary from becoming too salty as the drought worsens. The $25 million project could be in place as soon as May 1.
