Water under the bridge:used to refer to events that are in the past and consequently no longer to be regarded as important. If you say that an event or incident is water under the bridge, you mean that it has happened and cannot now be changed, so there is no point in worrying about it any more.  (陈年旧事、 不值一提)

中文释义:这个短语的原义为:桥下的水,不过用作俚语时,通常将water引申为“事情、光阴”,翻译过来就是:“逝去的往事、过去的光阴”。中国人常常感慨往事如烟、覆水难收、时光如流水;而西方人则说“小桥流水、一去不回。”
