The '''Werse''' ([[FGKZ]] 32) is a 67&nbsp;km long, left-hand tributary of the [[River Ems]] in [[Münsterland]], [[North Rhine-Westphalia]] in Germany. The [[catchment area]] of the Werse is 762.47&nbsp;km². Its name may be derived from a pre-Indo-European language, [[Vasconic substratum theory|Vasconic]], from which the [[Basque language]] developed. Its [[water quality]] is Class II-III and, in places, Class II. Contamination from communal sewage farms, fish ponds, but especially diffuse contamination from agriculture pollutes the mass balance of the Werse and leads to [[eutrophication]] along the entire river course, especially in the retention basin areas.<ref>''Gewässersteckbrief der Werse.''
