Electric outlet under drain pipe?
 
I have a drain pipe running across a wall in my basment. It is a 3 inch PVC pipe that runs to the cesspool. Is it against code to mount outlets beneath it?

The pipe is about 7 foot off the ground and I would mount the boxes on the wall below it. I have not been able to find a code that it would violate but wanted to be sure.

Thanks

Its fine to put them there. The pipe does not change anything about your dry location.
