An ultrasonic sensor and an Arduino work pretty well for this application. Arduino can drive an external meter using PWM, and the whole setup is pretty simple and inexpensive. You'll just need a 5V @ 500mA power supply.
Thanks Mathew. Can you point me in the direction of a decent quality ultrasonic sensor thank can withstand being mounted inside of a well-water filled holding tank?
