Dealing with shriveled sod?

I seem to be running into this a lot with all the new developments being built in my area. People don't seem to realize this stuff needs water. As it dries it leaves clumps of grass and bald patches ripe for weeds. I know the best way to deal with this is rip it out and redo. But a lot of people don't want that done so I'm looking for the best way to repair in, Letís say, 2 seasons?

I was thinking "Obviously" a watering regiment.
Aeration, spring and fall.
Thin layer of topsoil after each aeration
Fert. program

You sure it's not urine damage from dogs or grubs?
