A flood warning covering parts of Carshalton, Beddington and Hackbridge has been lifted following last week's storms.
The Environment Agency had warned people living in areas near the Wandle to be prepared for flooding but that has been lifted now that the water table has started to recede.
The warning was put in place last week as heavy rains caused the Wandle to swell, spilling into Carshalton High Street and flooding parts of the BedZed estate in Hackbridge.
More than 2,000 homes had been identified as being at various levels of risk but that has now abated.
