"Au contraire," pas de "eau contrare"

Au contraire = "a le contraire," but "a le" is contracted to "au," which is, predictably, pronounced the same as "eau."
"Contrary water," would be "eau contraire," whatever that is. Of course, none of this has anything to do with Eau Claire.

I hope this clears everything up.
