This article has been retracted: please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal (https://www.elsevier.com/about/our-business/policies/article-withdrawal). This article has been retracted at the request of the authors due to the results of a detailed investigation of the data quality conducted by the Central Analytical Laboratory (CAL) after relocation to the University of Wisconsin (UW) – Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene. Using a subset of the 30 samples with the highest bromide ion (Br-) concentrations, the CAL at UW found 6 samples that could not be verified or were incorrect. Because the extent of the incorrect data is unknown, the NADP Executive Committee voted unanimously in May 2019 to discontinue public access to these data, and they decided to sequester all Br- data prior to June 2018. These issues were not obvious to the authors when the paper was written. The authors apologize for the inconvenience caused.
