Rusty, I can see 'It's no use crying over spilt milk' (which makes sense )

But would you say 'It's water under the bridge' would fit the bill also, or is there another expression in Spanish that would be better for it?

edit:
Sorry I already looked it up in the idiom dictionary
'Ser agua pasada ' I guess that would be.
