How to Repair an Ungrounded Well Pump

I recently had my main electrical box upgraded.  When the electrician was testing the receptacles he discovered an open ground on the wires that go to my well. He told me he'd have to dig and install new wires leading to the well. I've lived here for 20 years without a problem. Can this problem be solved simply by installing a ground fault circuit interrupter at the main box?
