Yes they did.
The London ampitheatre still has a lot of its plumbing and includes a silt-trap, and there are settling tanks associated with the floodwater harvesting systems in Libya (although these are primarily indigenous, the technology is definitely in use).
I believe that there is a settling tank at Chesters too (anyone know for sure?).

I've just seen Justin's tweet. Rained off again. The weather webcams tell a sorry tale :'(

MissClareCharlotte, I'm with you in your admiration of the water tank. I am currently loving it, and looking forward to seeing it in the flesh later on in the season (please don't let Andy hoik it out!).

I am also currently taking my hat off to the smiling, ice-cream wielding diggers. Their fortitude and good nature does them credit. And, as always, thanks to Snowglobe for the excellent pictures.

"Flavius Cerialis to his September, greetings. Tomorrow, which is 5 October 28 June, as you wish my lord, I will provide some goods (?) ice cream ... by means of which (?) we may endure the storms even if they are troublesome." ;)

All credit to everyone who has had to cope with those conditions, and, as usual, kept on doing a sterling job.

I'm trying to think of something to say about your video that doesn't involve swearing.

Nope...can't think of anything :o
