Bobby Howell, Sr. started a wastewater service and sales company in 1979.  Over the years, with many changes and periods of growth, the company progressed into also providing water and wastewater utilities.  The corporate offices of Dove Environmental, F&B Equipment Sales and Water and Wastewater Utilities are housed in Scott, LA. 

In 2014, the companies started operating under the name of Howell Environmental Companies.  The name change soon proved to be even more honorable, after the sudden, unexpected and devastating loss of our founder in 2015.  His family members and work family came together to continue his dream of keeping the company thriving. Even though there are big shoes to fill, his goal will continue to be our goal, to provide quality services, equipment and gold standard care to our customers. Servicing several parishes across the state, Howell Environmental Companies strive for excellence and are committed to a culture of innovation, quality and exceptional customer service. 

Our company purpose is to continue building a great company that provides a safe environment for our families and community.  Our company values are having a positive attitude, working hard, being honest and have integrity, and be accountable for the work we do.  We are also proud to be a woman owned business under our new President/Owner, Flora Howell.


Born and raised in Bossier City, LA area, Bobby Howell Sr was an entrepreneur at heart. Bobby began his career in the municipal world as a warehouse foreman and soon became a top salesman in the field. 

Mr. Bobby believed in having a strong work ethic and had a driving force to succeed in all endeavors. He was a larger than life man of integrity, loyalty and strong character.  More importantly, he had a strong commitment to his faith and his family.  He also cared deeply for all who have worked at Howell Environmental Companies.
