Some main roads have reopened but others remain closed following severe flooding in parts of south west Hertfordshire.

One lane has opened in Lower High Street in Watford but Water Lane remains closed due to the deluge.

In Three Rivers, Park Road reopened yesterday after flooding badly by the roundabout with High Street.

Green Street in Chorleywood and Coppermill Lane in Rickmansworth Road are both still closed.

This will hopefully put water management and water abstraction in the spot light especially as our chalk streams and the Colne tributaries need attention. In some years the Gade seems to lose its zest for flowing.

Agree, but 4 months from now, don't be surprised if there's another hosepipe ban! Water management across most of England has been woeful for years.

Water companies have been eerily quiet during the floods, it's their remit to manage water and they're doing a great job of remaining out of the public eye, when they should be at the forefront of the effort to solve the issues.
