HEREFORD --     Hereford is looking to add more to its water supply.   
    People there are voting on that issue tonight.
    If they vote yes, it'll be a $36-million deal.   
    If purchased, Hereford officials expect the wells to provide an additional eighty to one-hundred years of water.
    They are looking to buy the rights to 11-thousand acres of land just north of town.
    Officials say though, that a yes vote would add an increase of around $40 to their water bill.
