wires crossing plumbing pipe


I'm extending some plumbing pipe for a new kitchen faucet. One of the new pipes (the cold water pipe) will be crossing some electrical wires at a 90 degree angle (the wires go to the disposal, dishwasher, and something else). Is this safe? Is there a barrier or protector needed between the pipe and wires? Do the wires need to be rerouted? Thanks for any help.

Romex shouldn't be hanging loose down there, but there's nothing special that needs to be done about the pipes.

The wires and pipes are inside the wall, so the wires aren't hanging loose. Thanks for your reply.

It is a non-issue. You're good to go!
