My pool cover was spread out on the grass to dry. The side of the cover on the ground was the side that rested in the water (and pool chemicals). Needless to say, the grass is now brown. What should I do to the ground in order for the grass to regrow in that area?

It may have been the pool chemicals but more likely it got so hot under there that it overheated the grass and top layer of soil and cooked the grass to death.  Now you’ll need to rough the area up with a rake and reseed and feed with a starter lawn food.  Keep the area constantly moist until the grass is well established and keep it mowed no lower than 5″ all this summer.  Next spring you can start treating life the rest of your established lawn.  I would dry the pool cover on the driveway next time.
