Default cooling water got into wort- now what

i was cooling in an ice bath made from tap water, the kettle tipped and now i have some wort in my ice bath, and undoubtedly some nasty ice bath water in my wort.

what should i do now? should i pitch the yeast and let it ride, or dump the wort?

thanks

Pitch the yeast and let it ride. What's the worst that can happen? You'll still have beer.

Pitch the yeast and see what happens. Worst case scenario you end up with some bad beer. Best case scenario, you end up with good beer.
