The JPS had reported that over the weekend, its teams were involved in an extensive exercise to clean-up breaches of its system in Tivoli when they were stoned.
JPS said additional police support had to be called in to ensure the safety of the crews and equipment.
In accepting the apology, Tomblin said this is the kind of political leadership needed to address what she called a volatile situation.
However, she noted that people could get hurt if situations like these do not come to an end.
Tomblin said JPS representatives met with a group from the community, in an effort to develop a mutually beneficial solution to their challenges.
The Company said it also looks forward to working alongside other political representatives and stakeholders.
