Dear all,Questioned about the long-term effects of Japan’s effort to “feed and bleed” the reactors — pouring in cooling water, then releasing it as steam into the atmosphere — he said there was an effort now under way to “minimize the release” of radioactivity into the air.

Thanks, Fabulist.I don't know the politically correct label for them or their "variety" of English, but there are people who would say that if the water goes into the glass, that is what you have to say. If you pour water "in a glass," you are in the glass.
Position or location = in
Motion = into
Thanks, Cagey.Pouring in is correct: "pouring in cooling water, then releasing it as steam into the atmosphere" explains what they mean by "feed and bleed": "pouring in water" = feed, and "releasing it as steam" = bleed (drain off).
I am not certain this answers your question. Why did you think it should be 'with'?
