SAN DIEGO -- Trash and debris are ruining Chollas Lake Recreation Center, according to residents who blame the City of San Diego for the problem.

Two popular rangers were moved out of Chollas Lake.  With them went the high standards Bill Torres and other visitors expect from this popular spot.

Torres said he has missed going to the lake as a daily activity only three times over the last seven years.  He credits two rangers who were assigned to oversee the condition of the recreation area as the key to keeping it clean.

They were re-assigned by the city and that is when the trash trouble started, Torres said.  Garbage cans overflow as cups, cans and debris float on the lake.

A petition was given to the City of San Diego asking for the return of those two rangers. The city has not followed through on that request and did not want to discuss the concern with FOX 5.
