" While recent research on interfacial water has focused mainly on the few interfacial layers adjacent to the solid boundary, century-old studies have extensively shown that macroscopic domains of liquids near interfaces acquire features different from the bulk. Interest in these long-range effects has been rekindled by recent observations showing that colloidal and molecular solutes are excluded from extensive regions next to many hydrophilic surfaces . Studies of these aqueous “exclusion zones” reveal a more ordered phase than bulk water, with local charge separation between the exclusion zones and the regions beyond , here confirmed using pH measurements. The main question, however, is where the energy for building these charged, low-entropy zones might come from. It is shown that radiant energy profoundly expands these zones in a reversible, wavelength-dependent manner. It appears that incident radiant energy may be stored in the water as entropy loss and charge separation."
There is a peak in the EZ water expansion, when radiation is infrared, with the wavelenght of 3100 nm, and from the UV spectra used the major impact is in the 600-700 nm band. So the growth of this more ordered, negatively charged zone is dependent on the incident electromagnetic energy.
A secondary result is that growth of this negatively charged zone is associated with build up of a zone of high proton concentration beyond.
There is a section  on EZ water and its effects on this web.
