Wiring through Wet walls

Does anyone know if it is ok (code) to run wire through a wetwall in the basement.

I have a sink in a workshop which is between a subpanel and other rooms. The plumbing is decending from the ceiling to the sink. The wires in the wall would run below the copper pipe.

dweingar, Im not familiar with the term "wetwall". Do you possibly mean a wall cavity that has plumbing water lines and /or a drain line? If so, you can run your wires through this cavity (assuming it is a wall that is enclosed with drywall and the wires are not exposed to physical damage. If this is just a bare block wall, you need to mechanically protect them ie. conduit.)

A wet wall is a wall with plumbing in it. There are no special rules for wet walls. You can do the same wiring as you would do in any other wall.
