Sweaty pipes

I just noticed that the copper water pipe that comes into the basement from the muni water supply has a lot on moisture on it. It is on the connections to, and the bottom of, the water meter as well. There are no leaks. The pipes are cold and I am sure it is just condensation. It does not drip, so it's not a lot. I have never noticed this before. I have finished the basement area that the meter is in and had planned to frame around these pipes and the meter, with an access panel for access. Can I wrap rags, or some kind of tape, around the pipe to keep it from possibly dripping, or to stop the condensation all together? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

that is the stuff to use. For cold pipes we use it to stop condensation for hot pipes it is used to stop loss of heat.
