Poured cement around water pipe

After repairing the sewer pipes I replaced the cement in my basement floor. During this process I covered the opening to the foundation that housed both my sewer pipe an water pipe leading out of the house.

Was this a mistake?

Typically, you want to sleeve the copper with something. It will most likely become a problem many years down the road as the lime in the concrete slowly eats away at the copper.
