GALVESTON — A deactivated U.S. Army barge with a nuclear reactor onboard will be hauled into the Port of Galveston where it will be decontaminated and decommissioned.

The MH-1A Sturgis barge will arrive in September from the James River National Defense Reserve Fleet base near Fort Eustis, Va. Crews will remove residual waste from the reactor before moving the barge to Brownsville, where it will be broken up for scrap.
