You are trying to fight nature, Linden Lab style.  It can't be done.  There is only one water level per sim, and the default is 20m.  The way to get your sim's water level to match the ones around you is to set yours to match theirs, not the other way around.    When you view a sim with your cam, the view you see should show the water level relative to the sim you are standing in.  That is, when you put your cam position in a neighboring sim but are standing on your own, your camera should see your sim's water level (in your example, 40m).

It's all very confusing, but almost impossible to work around.  We are messing with the world here.  In RL, there is normally only one water table in an area the size of a sim, so we don't see this sort of contradiction.  We don't see it in SL either if we are on isolated islands.  It only happens when we try to do something "unnatural" by setting different water tables on adjacent sims.
