Note the high R-squared value (0.953) for this log normal plot, based on fitting the data with an exponential curve. Compare against the linear R-squared value from the last high water mark in October, which had fallen to 0.784. Based on the data and the steadily decreasing R-squared value for the standard linear regression, I think it’s now safe to say that the data confirms that the high water mark grows at an exponential rate.
