Default wasn't told to boil my pure water

So I just brewed my first batch and I'm stoked, but as I was reading on here, I realized something. I never boiled the water I added my wort to after it brewed. Am I hosed or will my beer be ok?

Agreed. The yeast take over pretty quick and make it inhospitable for anything else. 99% sure you'll be just fine.

It'll be fine. The only reason we started using bottled is because the tap water in my neighborhood reeks of Chlorine.

That's a shame, the water in my area is considered one of if not the best in the state.
