This study focused on the coastal area of Hammam Lif, an urban zone – about 20 kilometers to the south of the capital city Tunis - threatened by flooding caused by rainwater and water generated by the wave run up on the shoreline area. In this study we evaluated the potential flood threat using in the calculation of runoff flow rate in the area of Hammam Lif caused firstly by rain and partly by the wave run up. The study, also, tried to highlight the wrong conceptual characteristics of the urban area infrastructure in Hammam Lif. In order to be able to face the potential flood threats caused by the rain in Hammam Lif, some adequate protective solutions were proposed and other soft protective solutions were suggested to face the wave run originating at the sea.
