In 2010, Chimacum and Port Townsend School Districts, the City of Port Townsend, Fort Worden State Park and Jefferson County signed an interlocal agreement to fund a Shared Resource Conservation Manager (RCM). The RCM is tasked with making recommendations on reducing cost and resource use in the five agency facilities.
An RCM focuses on reducing energy, water and solid waste at each facility. The following methodology is used to accomplish this:1. Build a utility database with facility energy, water and solid waste bills
In essence, an RCM program assists in optimizing facility operation, and educating occupants on ways they can help conserve resources.

The shared RCM program is funded in part by funds made available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This funding was awarded by the US Department of Energy through the Energy Office of the Washington State Department of Commerce under Energy Efficiency and Grant Conservation Block Grant No. DE-EE0000849. http://www.energy.wsu.edu/PublicFacilitiesSupport/ResourceConservation.aspx
