Why Did Bomber Command not Follow up on the Dambusters Raid?

Living History

The Dambusters raid needs no introduction.

It was a tactical success that cost the German war effort precious money, materials and man power.

The water in the Dams were vital for the surrounding War factories and the Germans were in a race against time to repair them as it would have been an absolute catastrophe if they had not been rebuilt in time for the Autumn rains and the on set of winter.

So why did Bomber Command not follow it up with more raids to disrupt the repair work on the Dams?

I would love to know your thoughts on this.
