The Jersey City Flowage is an artificial lake on the Tomahawk River, located about one mile above the confluence with the Wisconsin River in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. The dam and the flow are controlled by the Wisconsin Valley Improvement Company. The dam was originally built in 1910 to provide power for a tannery.
