Bellitto was recognized for his high ideals of professional and ethical conduct, his commitment to the development of the best technologies to provide potable drinking water to communities in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and his volunteer work with Water for People, an international nonprofit organization that helps provide people in developing countries with the tools and resources they need to obtain and maintain a potable water supply.

Bellitto has been involved with the technical and management capacities in the water industry for 31 years, in New York City where he started his career and in Bucks and Montgomery Counties in Pennsylvania. He has been Executive Director of NPWA since 1998 and is a Licensed Professional Engineer, holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering from Manhattan College in New York City.
