Electrical and Plumbing Inside Wall Cavity

Redoing the shower in the bathroom, and after opening up the wall, I discovered the plumbing to the shower shares the same space (within about 2 feet) as the 220V outlet for the dryer on the opposite side of the wall.

Is there a code-compliant method to seal this outlet incase a leak were to occur within the wall? Or am I concerned over nothing? Thanks in advance for the advice!

You may be concerned over something unlikely.

shares the same space (within about 2 feet)
Vertically? Horizontally? What, exactly, is the layout?

There is no code issue with that setup. A non issue IMO.
