Not necessarily. It all depends on just how far into BRM/BRS they went into. And just how long they (Alliance) spent there.

Wait a sec, didn't the Horde kick the Dark Iron out of BRS and force them down into BRD? The DI had control of the entire mountain, the Horde moved in and took the upper half while the DI controlled the lower half.

Same place that the Dark Iron were getting theirs. I certainly don't see any massive sources of water and yet Shadowforge City and it's sizeable amount of dwarves have survived.

Again, keep in mind that Grom Hellscream and his big clan of orcs evaded capture for 30 years in SoS. The Alliance tried to find them and never did. If having someone sense them worked, then why didn't the Alliance ever find them until 30 years later?

And nobody knew about the destruction of Southshore.
