Dutch term or phrase: beloopbare leidingen
Ik heb geen context voor deze vraag anders dan dat het uit een bouwkundig document komt. "Beloopbare leidingen etc. afzetten".

peg out pipes/passages/pipeline through which liquid or gas can flow

I think it has to do with excavation works, demolition works or something else. pipes et cetera through which probably a liquid or a gas flows must be fenced / pegged out to forestall damage to these pipes. I guess there is an adjective for the phrase "through which liquid or gas can flow". I don't know it yet, but I guess I know it over an hour or something else

fence active pipes

It seems odd to me, but actually possibly:
ascendable pipes; pipes to be walked on

beloopbaar = ascendable; to be walked on

Na het commentaar van David:
fence service pipes
Sec. 20-15. Storm sewer service pipes.

All storm sewer service pipes leading from the main sewer in the street or public

But I wonder now if service pipe is sufficient. Damaging main pipes is even worser and damaging drain pipes may be very stinking

I think afzetten in this context means "turn off"

\"Services\" is a general term which applies to water, gas, electricity, steam, compressed air, sewers, etc. etc.
