Answer:  FLOOD PLANE

(Nice pun!  This one feels fresh.  Not re-hashed, like yesterday’s.  There were no new clue words, and only two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  We’ve definitely seen both “tonef” and “geptil” before.  It’s always fun seeing “piglet” and “radial”.  They’re classic clue words.  The answer letter layout presented a nice challenging jumble.  I figured the one word – probably the second – had to be PLANE.  OOFDL quickly gave me FLOOD . . . and then the pun sank in!  Apparently, both floodplain and flood plain are proper.  Fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
