That's an option that conforms to the NEC... You simply need to use #6 AWG or better copper and the appropriate connectors to bond the axillary ground rod to the existing electrical service grounding system. In most installations, the ground rod alone, provides very little added protection... It's the heavy bonding conductor that is capable of holding the various grounded items at the same voltage level during a fault. Preventing voltage differences between conductive surfaces is the goal.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
