I've corrected a drainage problem but an area of my sod is damaged. Additionally we've had a wet winter. How soon do I reseed after the pre-emergin herbacide is applied?

A pre emergent will keep seeds from germinating, whether they are weed or grass seeds so you'll have to wait. The waiting period is listed on the product label - generally about 4 weeks - but check the label just to make sure.
